Monthly Meeting for Tuesday, 12 May 2015

Expanding Scope of Quality Management Systems to Keep Up with Stakeholder Demands

Lisa F. Wilk, Julie Muszalski

The presentation will review current applicable standards as well as an update on proposed standards, including several new international management systems standards and guidelines. Specifically, the presentation will address QC 080000:2012, IEQC’s “Quality Assessment System for Electronic Components – Hazardous Substance Process Management System (HSPM); the new ISO 14001 Revisions; ISO 26000:2010 (Social Responsibility); ISO 22301:2012 for Business Continuity Planning; and ISO 45001, which will be the replacement for current OHSAS 18001 Occupational Safety and Health Management System.

Integrating these management systems will require both internal process controls as well as consistent external reporting to customers and other important stakeholders. This presentation will also discuss these challenges and explore opportunities for addressing these needs through the use of common elements of ISO management systems.
