ISO 45001: The journey to publication

The 4th meeting of ISO/PC 283, the Project Committee responsible for the development of the new international occupational health & safety management system standard, ISO 45001 took place in Geneva between 21-25 September 2015.

The purpose of this meeting was to agree a version of ISO 45001 which could progress as the Draft International Standard (DIS) following review of the comments received against the second Committee Draft (CD2).

The DIS will now be submitted to the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) for review before it is made available to its member national standards bodies.

Following the end of a translation period (currently expected January/February 2016), the DIS will then be subject to a three month review and ballot by the national standards bodies.

Further meetings of ISO/PC 283 are planned for late May/early June 2016 and if necessary, based upon the volume of comments received against the DIS, a second meeting in September 2016 may also take place.

When will ISO 45001 be published?

Based upon this, the ISO 45001 publication date could be as early as July/August 2016 or as late as March 2017.

Should any comments received against the DIS be of a significant technical nature, the project committee will be required to follow the FDIS process and this can add an additional six months to the timescales.

With all the major ISO standards being revised, LRQA is at the forefront of communicating the changes. We offer a range of assessment services as well public and in-house training courses, all aimed at helping to ensure that organisations worldwide have a smooth transition to the new standards.
