In December 2008, the new version of DIN EN ISO 9001:2008 was published, replacing DIN EN ISO 9001:2000. The standard is available now and can be ordered from, for example, ISO or the Beuth publishing company. The ISO/TC 176 standards committee, which is responsible for this area, has confirmed that there is no formal change to the requirements in the new DIN EN ISO 9001:2008 as compared with its predecessor. Nonetheless, standards users would be well-advised to use the new standard as an opportunity to conduct a self-critical QM system analysis. The new version contains various clarifications, aimed at reducing the different interpretations applied to individual requirements in the past. On the one hand, these clarifications can result in interpretations that make things easier for the user, on the other, individual requirements can be interpreted more strictly.
