Consequently the need for qualified IMS Lead Auditors is growing. IMS Lead Auditors gain the necessary knowledge and skills to ...

ISO 9001:2015, Quality management systems, has now been published as an Australian/New Zealand Standard, AS/NZS ISO 9001:2016.

The same ridiculous situation will be the case for ISO 14001:2015, Environmental management systems, which was published in September 2015 but Standards Australia has yet to publish it.

JLB is developing transition courses for auditors and clients - both are likely to be a combined one day course for both standards.
