Understanding the new ISO management system requirements
This book is a “must-have” for organizations and individuals keen on ensuring a smooth transition and obtaining maximum benefit from their investment in having a management system.
No prior knowledge of management systems is assumed.
In April 2012, ISO updated its directives. There was a new annex – Annex SL (renamed in 2019 as Annex L) – which defines the High Level Structure and Identical Core Text for all new and revised management system standards. The concept is that some requirements, e.g. management review, are common to all management system standards and therefore ought to be identically worded.
The book explains the new requirements and how they are related to those in management system standards published prior to the advent of the new ISO directives. It shows how familiar concepts have metamorphosed into new ones. It provides fresh insights into understanding management system standards and thereby gives guidance on how to develop a management system for the first time.
