    I just started working for a small company and they asks that I help with implementation of ISO 9001:2015. They purchased a template from The 9000 Store back in February and they sold them the 2008 version. Now they say they have to buy the 2015 version. Is there a better company to purchase the ISO 9001 : 2015 templates?

    It depends on what you mean by "better". There are relatively few organizations which have achieved ISO 9001:2015 compliance from zero so far. Therefore, knowing which method they used and which is the best "template" is almost impossible to tell.

    I'd avoid "templates", since ISO 9001:2015 is quite a lot different to the 2008 version so the use of pre-written documents is less necessary. Maybe save your money on them and spend it on a course to find out what to do?

    It occurs to me that, since you have a 2008 template, it's not that big a deal to bring it into line with 2015, really... A bit of help in that direction could save you in the short (and long) term!

    Does what you now have provide you and the rest of the staff with a clear and concise description of what to do on a day-to-day basis, to just the level of detail they need to do their jobs?
    If not, you may have stuff that you do not need.
    It's far better to define what you need to run the business, and (eg) take on new staff with minimum hassle, than "just" to get the badge...

    ISO 9001:2015 was made to be more appropriate for business systems; so if there's any template, I would suggest it would be for business plans for the context subjects. Following that, I did put a template for risk based planning here. Its Instructions page has links for other RBT templates and things too.

    I hope this helps!

    If you have not purchased the standard yet...that would be the 1st thing I would do.

    In addition to this, I suggest Craig Cochran's book ISO 9001:2015 in Plain English.

    Here are two books that are very good:

    · ISO 9001:2015 Explained fourth edition, Charles A Cianfrani, John E West

    · A Practical Field Guide for ISO 9001:2015, Erik V. Myhrberg

    From ASQ Quality Press
