Understanding the Key Changes Organisations Need To Implement To Obtain Certification

A one-day conference

Royal Marine Hotel,
Dun Laoghaire, Co. Dublin

Date: 5th July 2017

ISO 9001, ISO 14001 & OHSAS 18001/ISO 45001 standards are undergoing radical change, bringing questions and concerns over the new structure, revised documentation requirements and a variety of other changes needed to meet standard conformance. This new approach represents a dramatic turn in direction.

In response to these significant changes, CMG Events are running a seminar on the revised standards to inform you of what you need to do to comply with the new standards and how to get certification.

Join us as we map out the latest versions and navigate you through the maze of changes you need to implement, plus give you the latest information available to help you adopt this new approach.

A Case Study will be presented from a company who have already made the changes necessary to meet the requirements of ISO 9001:2015 & ISO 14001:2015 standard. This event will provide attendees with an opportunity to find out the key steps taken to make the transition, the changes that were required and the impact to the business.

The aim of this event is to provide you with answers to the following questions:

  • What are the changes?
  • How will the changes affect your organisation?
  • What are the implications for your existing Quality, Environmental and or Health & Safety Management System?
  • What can you do to transition to the new standards?

For anyone involved in quality, environmental or health & safety management systems, whether as a quality manager, environmental manager or health and safety manager, this event is of vital importance and a must attend event for all.
