Why Are the Standards Changing?

ISO revise management system standards regularly to ensure they remain relevant and effective in a world of changing technology and business practices.

During the revision process, the national member bodies contribute input and feedback to improve the standard through a series of drafts.


Is OHSAS 18001 Becoming ISO 45001?

OHSAS 18001 is often mistaken for an ISO standard, however it has remained a British Standard for many years.

Now, as ISO develops an international equivalent it is likely OHSAS 18001 will be withdrawn, and existing certificates will be able to make the transition.

It needs a name change because “ISO 18001” already exists as: (ISO/IEC TR 18001:2004
Information technology — Radio frequency identification for item management — Application requirements profiles).

What is Annex SL?

ISO published Annex SL with the objective of “delivering consistent and compatible management system standards in an attempt to make this process easier”.

All future management system standards will have these three key elements, making them easier to integrate:

  • High-level structure.
  • Identical core text.
  • Common terms and core definitions.
