  • ISO 9001 User Survey 2020

The International Standard ISO 9001 “Quality management systems — Requirements”, developed by ISO (International Organization for Standardization) is one of the most recognized standards (or normative documents) in the world. 

ISO 9001:2015 is currently undergoing a formal “systematic review”. Following the review, ISO/TC 176 will decide whether the standard should be “confirmed” (i.e. left unchanged), be revised or amended, or be withdrawn. 

As an input to making the decision, ISO/TC 176 would like to obtain the views of users of ISO 9001:2015 on whether the standard is adequate, or if it should be improved. In addition, ISO/TC 176 has been giving consideration to “future concepts” for quality by testing the acceptability of such concepts with users, for potential inclusion in a future edition of ISO 9001. 

For this purpose, ISO/TC 176 established an online survey - ISO 9001 User Survey for 2020, to obtain feedback. 

EOQ, following its mission to improve European society through the promotion of Quality in its broadest sense and as an ISO TC 176 liaison member, supports the promotion of this survey, by inviting all categories of users of the ISO 9001 from all over the world to participate in this global survey about its future.

Participate in the  “ISO 9001 User Survey for 2020
or follow the ISO/TC176/SC02 website 

For your convenience, the survey is available in 13 different languages (to see the available languages, see the drop-down list in the top righthand corner of the survey). The survey consists of 20 questions and takes about 10 – 15 minutes to complete.

Survey deadline: December 2020

Contact person for additional information: Mr Charles Corrie (UK) - Secretary ISO/TC 176/SC 2 (e-mail: charles.corrie@bsigroup.com)

Your contribution is very important to ensure the continued relevance, usefulness and recognition of the International Standard ISO 9001 and your your input via the survey will be much appreciated!

  • The EOQ General Assembly and Executive Board have appointed Ulf Gustavsson as the new EOQ Secretary General, starting his job beginning of June 16th, 2020. See EOQ Press Release - June 2020



  • EOQ launched the European Quality Leader (EQL) 2019 contest. Candidates for the yearly European Quality Leader award may be proposed by EOQ National Representative organizations.
    The European Quality Leader is awarded by the EOQ to the best applicant to the yearly contest, by taking into account the defined EOQ-EQL criteria. Granting the EOQ QL Award is a strategic decision of the EOQ to promote top performances of people acting in the quality field in its broadest sense.
