Based on the 2014 DIS version of ISO 9001, the 2015 edition when released, will require risk-based thinking. However, it will likely not actually mention risk management or ISO 31000, except perhaps in an annex or the bibliography. However, organizations would do well to use ISO 31000 as a basis for deciding how risk-based thinking can be effectively integrated into the quality management system to help it be not only an operational, but also a strategic, contributor to performance.
One of the committees involved in revising ISO 9001 has stated that while risk-based thinking is an activity we often carry out automatically, there is a need to do so using a more systematic approach. While the processes prescribed by the standard have helped organizations reduce risk (e.g., by ensuring personnel have the appropriate knowledge/skills), a more explicit application of risk management concepts can help fill some of the important gaps that changes in today’s highly interconnected organizational, social, economic and technological worlds can quickly create.
This webinar by Duke Okes will explain how to use risk-based thinking in the quality management system. You will also learn how to employ risk assessment techniques within the quality management system.
