ASQ Q9001 has been updated. The new ASQ/ANSI/ISO 9001:2015, “Quality management systems – Requirements,” is available now from Document Center Inc. in both paper and pdf formats. And you can add it to our enterprise solution subscription service, Standards Online, as well.
This new 2015 Edition is an identical adoption of ISO 9001:2015. This means that there is no difference in the text of the ASQ Q9001 to the ISO 9001, with the possible change in spelling from the British convention used by ISO to the American spellings found in the ASQ editions.
Price used to be a distinct advantage of using the ASQ edition over the ISO. However, this time there is little difference in the price one to the other. So in many ways it is only a matter of preference and past practice that should help you determine which Edition to use.
The ASQ ISO 9001:2015 adoption was approved by ANSI on 10/21/2015, making it not only an ASQ publication but also an American National Standard. That’s why the correct number on the publication is now ASQ/ANSI/ISO 9001:2015. You’ll find the number contains the reference to all three “participating” organizations.
As with all national and regional adoptions of the ISO 9001, the ISO text is reprinted in it’s entirety. The only modification is the addition of cover sheet and back sheet information from ASQ, the adopting organization in this case. This is typical of all ISO adoptions. Only in a few cases will you find your cover sheets to reference material changes to the ISO content for a particular jurisdiction. This practice of making specific modifications for a particular country is called national deviations. And of course, each page is labeled “ASQ/ANSI/ISO 9001:2015” as well.
In the past, ASQ pdf format standards had the print function turned off. However, this practice has been abandoned, so you’ll be able to print one paper copy from the single-user license pdf version available at the Document Center webstore, www.document-center.com.
