The new generation standards ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 have introduced the ‘context’ of an organisation standing for its business environment. In fact, an organization cannot be sustainable without taking into account the dynamically changing environment relating to market, legal and social issues. Changes in standards requirements that regulate management systems also refer to changes in the organisation’s context.

The way organisations should change so as to comply with new standards, the tools that allow organisations to keep abreast of the times and achieve market leadership as well as difficulties faced along the road from today to tomorrow will be in focus of the II SGS Quality Director Forum “Management Systems in a Changing Context” to take place on 25 November 2016 in Moscow.


The Quality Directors Forum 2016 will be structured around the following sessions:

  • Transition to the new versions of the ISO standards: issues to consider. The auditing experience and ways to solve transition period’s problems
  • Integrated management systems (IMS): extending the borders. Performance indicators for an IMS. Integration of various standards into an IMS
  • Practical tools to boost continuous improvement: non-conformities management, claim management, lean production, innovations management
  • ROUND TABLE DISCUSSION: Change management. How to overcome personnel resistance when implementing organizational innovations and how to bring new requirements of the standards to life?
