The introduction of the HLS (High Level Structure) ISO regime has presented a signicant challenge to every employee in more than a million organisations across the globe. These are the organisations that previously held various management standards under the old ISO:2008 regime and are now looking to upgrade their certifications.

This white paper details the major differences between ISO:2008 and ISO:2015, offers insight on the opportunities for business and includes helpful guidance on how to prepare for the change.
