Looking Forward

A new revision of Standard ISO/IEC 80079-34:2018 (Edition 2.0) was published on Thursday 30th August 2018.. The standard has been redrafted to bring it in line with Annex SL (the same structure as ISO 9001:2015 - Quality Management Systems - Requirements) which defines the framework for a generic management system. All new ISO Management System Standards (MSS) will adhere to this framework and all current MSS will migrate at their next revision.
David Ford QA Limited will be looking forward to providing consultancy in the transition period on changes to Quality Management Systems requirements for the new revision of the standard.

From contract tender to final delivery, David Ford QA Limited can provide independent QA support to assist the delivery of compliant product or services.
