27th November 2014, 9am – 1pm, Keele Conference Centre

This event has now taken place – view the presentation slides here

Take your first steps towards a smooth ISO 9001:2015 transition. Join us for a FREE TRAINING EVENT to understand more about the proposed changes to the standard and how they will affect your business.

ISO 9001 is soon to be updated. The draft version of the standard has been published for comment before September 2014 with a final version currently expected to be published in early 2015. As the standard is being fully re-written there are likely to be some major updates which will have an impact of both existing and new certification customers.

This half day workshop will guide you through the changes to the standard and provide you with tips for preparing for and implementing the revised version of the ISO 9001 standard. Delegates attending this event will also have the opportunity to register for an optional breakfast briefing focusing on the forthcoming changes to ISO 14001 (environmental management systems) which is also due for publication next year.

Due to anticipated high demand, please be aware that this free event is open to Alcumus clients and potential clients only.

We are holding a separate event for our business partners and ISOQAR consultants on the same day and at the same venue – details and registration can be found here.
