Auditor Advisory: ISO 9001:2015

Exemplar Global Certification (a division of Exemplar Global Inc.) will be requiring any personnel holding certification in the following programs to meet new ISO 9001:2015 certification requirements:

  • Competency-based QMS auditors (all grades)

  • Internal auditors holding the ISO 9001:2008 scope
  • Heavy vehicle accreditation auditors
  • Certified quality management systems practitioners

The certification requirements are currently being drafted and will align with the release of the Final Draft International Standard (FDIS) ISO 9001:2015.

An update to this advisory will be circulated shortly after release of the FDIS, outlining:

  • What is required to demonstrate transition adequacy
  • Date to begin transition requirements
  • Deadline to complete transition requirements
  • Any Exemplar Global Certification costs associated with transitioning

Currently, many certified professionals are seeking advanced professional development to the Draft International Standard (DIS) and have approached Exemplar Global to provide a solution. Exemplar Global College (an independent division of Exemplar Global) supports the current demand by offering all auditors certified to the ISO 9001:2008 scope ISO 9001:2015 transition development and assessment.
