The latest version of ISO 45001 has been approved with 93% of the votes, ISO has announced. Nothing stands in the way of the publication of the new ISO standard in March. The certification audits can be carried out according to the FDIS version (Final Draft International Standard), but the actual certificates are only issued after publication of the standard. The FDIS is the definitive text and no changes can be made to it.
Especially for organizations that want to get started and want to adapt their health and safety management system (in combination with the environmental management system) to the new standards, SCCM has created an information sheet about the introduction of ISO 45001 and the transition from OHSAS 18001 to ISO 45001. Based on the ISO / FDIS 45001 SCCM has drawn up the concept of certification scheme ISO 45001. This version can be used by certification bodies to perform audits based on the FDIS version. The final certification scheme ISO 45001 is published when the Dutch translation of ISO 45001 is available. For further information, please visit www.sccm.nl.
