ISO 9001:2015 Quality management systems
ISO 9001:2015, Fifth Edition: Quality management systems – Requirements 5th Edition ISO 9001:2015 specifies requirements for a quality management system when an organization:
a) needs to demonstrate its ability to consistently provide products and services that meet customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements, and
b) aims to enhance customer satisfaction through the effective application of the system, including processes for improvement of the system and the assurance of conformity to customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements.
All the requirements of ISO 9001:2015 are generic and are intended to be applicable to any organization, regardless of its type or size, or the products and services it provides.

What are the major differences ?
The most noticeable change to the standard is its new
structure. ISO 9001:2015 now follows the same overall
structure as other ISO management system standards (known
as the High-Level Structure), making it easier for anyone
using multiple management systems. More information can
be found in Annex SL of ISO/IEC Directives Part 1 (the rules
for developing ISO standards).
Another major difference is the focus on risk-based thinking. While this has always been part of the standard, the new
version gives it increased prominence. More information
on how to adapt to this risk-based thinking can be found
on the Website run by ISO/TC 176/SC 2, the group of experts
behind the standard
