Do Not Rush Implementing Revisions
The ISO 9001 Committee Draft received has only received a 78% approval rate! There were 12 negative votes from representatives of major countries such as the US, Germany, Japan, and Canada and 3,000 comments that need to be addressed!
Only when the hurdles of these comments and negative votes are cleared, a Draft International Standard (DIS) can be released.
Same issues are facing Annex SL, which was developed as a skeleton on which all International Management System Standards will be built. Its purpose is to make life easier for organizations implementing multiple standards by standardizing their language, terminology and format.
The new draft international standard (DIS) of ISO 14001 is only expected in late 2014 and a final standard a year later with a 3-year transition period.
So it is better to wait and continue with the current versions of these standards, which may be around for another 4 years!!!
No Rush implementing revisions :)
The new update to ISO 9001 is going to be major in nature, yet it can be painless for organizations that adopt a correct transition strategy.

A close look shows that ISO 9001:2015 follows the new structure common to all management system standards: It has now 10 main clauses. The requirements are in clauses 4-10. Unfortunately many requirements you know are now located differently. I.e. requirements for both management review and internal audit are now under Clause 9 Performance Evaluation. 'Management Responsibilities' is now under Clause 5 Leadership.
