Product Overview

Easily Transition From ISO 9001:2008 to the New ISO 9001:2015

There is still enough time to complete the upgrade within the transition period (the deadline is September 15, 2018). Our upgrade kit makes the process quick and easy.

The ISO 9001:2015 Upgrade Package contains a detailed transition guide and step-by-step instructions, new ISO 9001:2015 procedures templates (with detailed customization instructions), new ISO 9001:2015 forms and checklists (with detailed customization instructions), as well as instructions on how to modify your existing ISO 9001:2008 procedures and forms. Alternatively to modifying your existing documentation you may choose, as an option, to replace your entire existing procedures and forms.

No Need to Rewrite Your ISO 9001 Documentation

We realize that you spent significant efforts writing or customizing your ISO 9001 quality manual, procedures and forms. That's why we prepared detailed, step-by-step instructions on how to modify your existing ISO 9001 documentation to make it ISO 9001:2015 compliant. It's the ideal solution for those who are happy with their existing ISO 9001 system.

If, however, you'd rather replace your entire existing documentation with our highly efficient ISO 9001:2015 procedures and forms, you may choose the full documentation upgrade as an option. It's the ideal solution for those who want to upgrade to the 9001Simplified System and make ISO 9001 a real business tool.

New Procedures, New Forms

ISO 9001:2015 includes several new requirements without equivalents in ISO 9001:2008 (the most famous of which are Risk Based Thinking, Context of the Organization and Organizational Knowledge). For those requirements, we designed all-new procedures templates. Simply customize our all-new ISO 9001:2015 procedures templates according to our detailed customization instructions, and add them to your existing ISO 9001 documentation as appendix.

In order to simplify implementation and compliance with the new requirements, we designed all-new forms which complement our new ISO 9001:2015 procedures. Though our forms typically require only minimal customization, and though their usage is self-evident, we still include customization and usage instructions.

Simple and Efficient

All new procedures templates, forms, and the modification instructions for existing procedures, are based on the 9001Simplified System and are as efficient and business-friendly as all our materials. The detailed transition guide is easy to understand and easy to follow. This upgrade package is not only designed for ease of use and quick upgrade to ISO 9001:2015, but - importantly - also to make your ISO 9001 quality management system a real business tool that improves operations and shows on the bottom line.

Is It Suitable for You?

The ISO 9001:2015 Upgrade Package is a comprehensive solution that gives you all you need to upgrade your current ISO 9001 quality management system to comply with the requirements of the 2015 version of ISO 9001. This upgrade kit is ideal if:

Your current ISO 9001 quality management system is based on our ISO 9001:2008 Complete Package, ISO 9001:2008 Implementation Manual or ISO 9001:2008 Streamlining Manual and you want to upgrade to ISO 9001:2015

Your current ISO 9001 quality management system is NOT based on our materials but you want to convert it to ISO 9001:2015

You just need the new ISO 9001:2015 procedures, forms and checklists

You quickly need to upgrade to ISO 9001:2015 but want to replace all existing procedures and forms later on (configure to include all new procedures and all new forms).

What Is Included?

The ISO 9001:2015 Upgrade Package includes the following items:

ISO 9001:2015 Transition Guide

The ISO 9001:2015 Transition Guide is a comprehensive guidebook that addresses everything you need to know and everything you need to do to upgrade to ISO 9001:2015:

Transition timeline and requirements

ISO 9001:2015 changes and new requirements

Correlation between ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 9001:2015

Practical, step-by-step instructions on how to upgrade your certification to ISO 9001:2015

Instructions on how to use the new procedures and forms

Detailed instructions (including the exact text to use) on how to modify your existing ISO 9001 procedures (these are many small modifications)

Detailed instructions on how to modify your existing ISO 9001 forms and checklists (these are a few small modifications)

Correlation Matrices

The ISO 9001:2015 Upgrade Package includes an ISO 9001:2008 to ISO 9001:2015 correlation matrix, as well as an ISO 9001:2015 to ISO 9001:2008 correlation matrix. Since the numbering systems of the two standards are quite different, these matrices are extremely useful when looking for the equivalent requirement(s) in the other standard. We included both matrices in customizable MS Word format so that you can modify them to fit your exact needs (for example, you may want to add your company name and logo and modify the footer in order to integrate in your ISO 9001 documentation).


The ISO 9001:2015 Transition Guide already gives you the exact text for modifying your existing procedures. However, ISO 9001:2015 includes several completely new requirements without equivalent in your existing ISO 9001:2008 system. For those new requirements we created all-new procedures which are included in the ISO 9001:2015 Upgrade Package. Procedures covering the following new requirements are included:

Understanding the Organization and its Context
(requirements of ISO 9001:2015, clause 4.1, including external factors)

Understanding the Needs and Expectations of Interested Parties
(requirements of ISO 9001:2015, clause 4.2, including internal and external parties)

Quality Management System and its Processes
(requirements of ISO 9001:2015, clause 4.4, including new process approach)

Leadership and Commitment
(requirements of ISO 9001:2015, clause 5.1, including more involvement of top management)

Actions to address Risks and Opportunities
(requirements of ISO 9001:2015, clause 6.1, including risk-based thinking)

Planning of Changes
(requirements of ISO 9001:2015, clause 6.3, including planning for processes)

Organizational Knowledge
(requirements of ISO 9001:2015, clause 7.1.6, including best practices)

If you choose our Process Structure as configuration option during checkout, the requirements of clauses 4.1 and 4.2 will be combined into one efficient procedure called "Strategic Planning". If you choose Standard Structure as configuration option during checkout, you will receive separate procedures for each ISO 9001:2015 clause.

As a configuration option, you may also choose all ISO 9001:2015 procedures addressing each and every ISO 9001:2015 requirement. This option is ideal for those of you who are not happy with their existing ISO 9001:2008 documentation and, therefore, would rather not modify it but completely replace it with our new ISO 9001:2015 procedures.

Process Flowchart

The ISO 9001:2015 upgrade kit also includes a new, customizable process flowchart to meet the new requirements of ISO 9001:2015.

Forms and Checklists

While the ISO 9001:2015 Transition Guide provides instructions on how to modify your existing forms and checklists, our ISO 9001:2015 upgrade kit also includes several completely new ISO 9001:2015 forms and checklists that complement the new procedures:

SWOT Analysis Worksheet
(simplifying compliance with ISO 9001:2015, clause 4.1)

Interested Parties Worksheet
(simplifying compliance with ISO 9001:2015, clause 4.2)

Corporate Environment Form
(simplifying compliance with ISO 9001:2015, clauses 4.1 and 4.2)

Process Definition Form
(simplifying compliance with ISO 9001:2015, clause 4.4)

Process Summary Form
(simplifying compliance with ISO 9001:2015, clause 4.4)

Risk Management Matrix
(simplifying compliance with ISO 9001:2015, clause 6.1)

Opportunity Management Matrix
(simplifying compliance with ISO 9001:2015, clause 6.1)

In addition, we are including the following ISO 9001:2015 forms to replace your existing ISO 9001:2008 forms (which cannot be updated):

ISO 9001 Audit Checklist
The audit checklist has been completely re-designed for ISO 9001:2015; it not only includes the new ISO 9001:2015 requirements but now also sections on process auditing and audit reporting. 55 pages.

ISO 9001:2015 Gap Analysis
This checklist replaces the ISO 9001:2008 Gap Analysis.

As a configuration option, you may choose all ISO 9001:2015 forms and checklists. This option is ideal for those of you who are not happy with their existing ISO 9001:2008 forms and, therefore, would rather not modify them but replace them with our new ISO 9001:2015 forms and checklists.

Customization Instructions

The included customization instructions guide you step by step through the entire modification of the included procedures, forms and checklists so that you can easily adjust them to fit your company's individual circumstances.

Cost-Effective ISO 9001:2015 Upgrade

The transition to ISO 9001:2015 and re-certification does NOT need to be expensive. See how the 9001Simplified System will save you money.

Minimized: we carefully analyzed ISO 9001:2015 to see what really changed so that you don't need to waste resources on perceived changes that are nothing more than new wording.

Do it yourself: complete ISO 9001 upgrade kit with all ISO 9001 documentation templates, forms, and detailed instructions allows for inexpensive in-house ISO 9001 implementation by your staff.

Inexpensive: much cheaper than a consultant, much less time than doing it from scratch - and avoid the errors too!

Business Value Added

I am giving a five-star rating to's ISO 9001:2015 Upgrade Package (we chose this version: services, single location, standard structure, only new forms and procedures) because of its practical use and efficiency. The package includes concise instructions that told us exactly what to do, which paragraphs of text to edit and which forms to modify. There were also all-new procedure templates and forms included which were easy to modify following the customization instructions. The included guidebook guided us well so we never needed to contact for their free consulting services. I hope that this review will help others as it helped us achieve the upgrade to ISO 9001:2015.

The ISO 9001:2015 upgrade package has made our transition to ISO 9001:2015 easy and fast (less than a week). We chose the configuration option to only include the new forms and the new procedures since our 2008 system is working very well for us (we used 9001Simplified for the original certification). I think that the beauty of this upgrade kit lies in it building so well onto the existing 2008 system and making one change only what's really needed. All is well explained. Customer service is superb.

We already used the 9001Simplified for our ISO 9001-2008 system and now the upgrade package to get ISO 9001-2015 certification. The transition was easy and straight-forward. A couple of new procedures and forms, some tweaks to the existing procedures, and we were done.

The instructions that come with this upgrade package reference some forms that are not included (for example, the ISO 9001 Management Review Form). All ISO forms should be included otherwise I can only give three stars. [RESPONSE BY 9001SIMPLIFIED: Thanks for your feedback. Actually, the configuration options of this package allow you to choose between "only the new forms" and "all forms". You selected "only the new forms" during your purchase. Please contact customer service so that we can arrange for an upgrade.]

The ISO9001-2015 upgrade kit is actually very good and very easy. But I got very angry because it is so very late my customers are waiting so long. So should I give one star because of the delay or 5 stars because of the good quality??? Okay I am not so angry already so maybe 4 stars then. [RESPONSE BY 9001SIMPLIFIED: Dear Domenic, thanks for waiting for the publication of our all-new upgrade package. We are glad that the quality of our upgrade package is making up for the wait.] (Submitted & Verified by RateTrust)
