Monthly Meeting for Tuesday, 9 February 2016

Risk and ISO 9001

Presentation Abstract:

Please join us for our monthly February meeting; our topic “Risk and ISO 9001” presented by Denise Robitaille.

Please note that the meeting will be held at Waltham Woods.

The long awaited revision to ISO 9001 is finally upon us with its much touted introduction of risk-based thinking. Implementation of this requirement pervades the entire standard.

What does this new concept of risk mean? How can it be successfully implemented? How to create value? What happens to the old preventive action?

This presentation will address these concerns and create a forum for discussing questions participants may have about risk-based thinking and related new requirements of ISO 901:2015.

Presented by Denise Robitaille
