More than 1,400 CQI members responded to the CQI Standards Panel ISO 9001:2015 survey, aimed to gauge members’ views on key sections of the Committee Draft (CD). Mark Braham, leader of the CQI Standards Panel ISO 9001 Team, outlines the key findings in ISO 9001:2015 CQI members' views.

The revision of the world’s most popular standard, ISO 9001, is set to have a huge impact on anyone working within the quality sphere.
