Setting the Scene

ISO (International Organization for Standardization) released the new version of the ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 standards in 2015 and more recently the ISO 45001.

DNV GL Š

September 2018 is when the transition period for these two schemes ended and all companies had to be aligned with the new requirements in ISO 9001 and ISO 14001.

In 2015 we surveyed our customers before they started their journey towards the transition to the new standards. For each of the most relevant new requirements, we asked how they will implement and plan to be compliant to the new requirement.

Today in 2018, we are repeating our investigation limited to those companies that have already completed the adoption of the new standard version, with the aim of understanding: â–Ş How they have actually met and satisfied the specific standard requirements in comparison with what they planned to do 3 years ago.

â–Ş What kind of benefits and value the new requirement created or is expected to create for the company.


ISO Requirements in Focus We will apply the same investigation format to the following set of new ISO requirements, which we consider the most relevant within the wider full set of new requirements brought in by ISO in the new Standard version:

4.1 – Understanding the organisation and its context 4.2 – Understanding the needs and expectations of interested parties 5.1 – Leadership and commitment 6.1 – Actions to address risks and opportunities 7.4 - Communication The requirement in focus is 4.2 – Understanding the needs and expectations of interested parties: “The organization shall determine interested parties relevant to the management system and their requirements. (9K). The organization shall monitor and review the information about the interested parties and relevant requirements / (14K). The organization shall determine which needs and expectations become its compliance obligations.”

Question 1 – Means for meeting the requirement How have you met the requirement (4.2) in your organisation? Mark initiatives that your organisation has implemented (multiple answers are allowed) ▪ The top 3 means adopted by companies reflect what was in their plans almost 3 years ago 78%

By determining external and internal interested parties

By determining all relevant requirements from interested parties

50%

By reviewing interested parties and their requirements on a regular basis

43%

By documenting the relevant interested parties and their requirements

40%

By having a documented process for mapping interested parties and their relevant requirements

27%

By embedding the relevant views and requirements of interested parties in your decision-making process

24%

Proactively engaging interested parties to understand their requirements

24% 18%

By determining only legal requirements By producing a ”materiality matrix” for understanding what requirements are most material

16% 11%

By determining external interested parties only Other initiatives

Don't know

4% 1%

▪ Some of the means are actually used more than what was previously expected by companies: – Determining interested parties: +30% – Determining their requirements: +11% – Documenting the result of the process: +10%

– Review on regular basis: +8% ▪ Maturity has increased in companies proven by the higher importance of documenting and repetition of the process over time to create sustainable results. ▪ Little variation between Quality and Environment, but companies with a certified EMS stand out in 3 areas: – Legal requirements (26% vs. 17%) – Having a documented process (33% vs. 25%) – Using the Materiality Matrix approach (23% vs. 15%) ▪ As could be expected, the number of “Don’t know” responses has decreased (from 12% to 1%)

2,0

Achievement of strategic objectives Creation of new market opportunities

4 High contribution

▪ Some variations between Quality and Environment: – Companies with a certified EMS see this as an additional support to meet legal requirements, achieve advantages with tax/insurances/banks, improve public image, as well as improve the relation with relevant authorities

▪ Due to the requirement’s nature, benefits related to financial and market nature do not rank high


Question 2 – Benefits, overall view (cont’d) The chart below shows the contribution of each of the 5 requirements in focus to the list of identified benefits. The chart will be progressively updated when a new requirement is analysed. When all 5 requirements will be investigated, the chart will be complete

Insights from auditing management systems The chart below shows a complementary picture to the survey results. It shows statistics from Lumina™, based on audit findings by DNV GL. See where the shoe pinches for companies in being compliant to the new requirements

30% % of companies with non-conformities (ISO 9K)

% of companies with non-conformities (ISO 14K)

% of companies with non-severe findings (ISO 9K)

% of companies with non-severe findings (ISO 14K)

▪ The data shows the percentage of companies where the audit (ISO 9001:2015 or ISO 14001:2015) resulted in one or more findings in the requirements in focus in this Espresso collection

In 5 companies (6 for Environment) out of 100, the finding is a non-conformity. ▪ Lumina™ is the DNV GL performance benchmarking tool for Management System certification; to learn more about Lumina ™, visit www.dnvgl.com/lumina
