ISO/CD2 19011 Expected to Reach DIS Stage in September

ISO/CD2 19011, which was completed on April 15, is circulating for ballot and comment until August 10, and the JWG on Quality and Environmental Auditing will meet September 25-30, 2000, to address the comments submitted. ISO 19011, which is projected to be published in mid-to-late 2001, is intended to serve as the sole guideline for internal and external auditing of QMSs and EMSs. John Stratton, who leads the US effort on QA standards and now leads one of the JWG task groups, indicates that US concerns with earlier drafts have been addressed fairly effectively. Information is included on progress to date, the comments being sought to improve certain areas of CD2, the improvements that ISO 19011 will provide and its relationship with ISO 9001:2000.
