2008年11月15日正式發布了2008版的ISO 9001標準。
ISO 9001:2008 was issued on Nov. 15th, 2008.
ISO 9001:2008的變化 / Changes of ISO 9001:2008
換版后的ISO 9001標準與ISO 9001:2000相比并沒有引入任何新的要求,而是根據世界上170個國家約100萬個通過ISO 9001認證的組織的8年實踐,更清晰、明確地解釋ISO 9001:2000的要求,并增強與ISO 14001:2004的相容性。
ISO 9001:2008 does not contain any new requirements, when compared to ISO 9001:2000. They have recognized that ISO 9001:2008 introduces no new requirements. ISO 9001:2008 only introduces clarifications to the existing requirements of ISO 9001:2000 based on eight years of experience of implementing the standard worldwide with about one million certificates issued in 170 countries to date. It also introduces changes intended to improve consistency with ISO14001:2004.

ISO 9001:2008的認證并不是“升級”,目前已經獲得ISO9001:2000認證的企業所持有的證書,與那些已經獲得ISO 9001:2008證書同樣有效。
Certification to ISO 9001:2008 is not an “upgrade”, and organizations that are certified to ISO 9001:2000 afforded the same status as those who have already received a new certificate to ISO 9001:2008.

ISO 9001:2008發布后一年(即2009年11月15日起),所有的發證審核(初次或續證審核)后都應換發ISO 9001:2008的證書。在進行年度跟蹤審核的時候,企業也可以申請換發ISO 9001:2008的證書。ISO 9001:2008發布后兩年,現有的所有ISO 9001:2000證書將自動失效,即有效期至2010年11月14日。
One year after publication of ISO 9001:2008 all accredited certifications issued (new certifications or re-certifications) shall be to ISO 9001:2008. During the surveillance audit the valid certificate could be transferred to ISO 9001:2008 as well. Twenty four months after publication by ISO of ISO 9001:2008, any existing certification issued to ISO 9001:2000 shall not be valid.

企業是否需要重新編寫文件?/ Will my organization have to re-write all its documentation?

與ISO 9001:2000相比,ISO 9001:2008對企業的要求并沒有太大的改變。
ISO 9001:2008 doesn’t introduce major changes to the requirements, when compared to ISO 9001:2000.

另一方面,為了使您的企業能從中獲益,我們建議您能通曉新版標準及相關解釋。若在此過程中發現有任何與您目前對ISO 9001:2000標準解釋或理解不同之處,請分析其對目前運行文件的影響,并對文件做出必要的調整和完善。ISO 9001的修訂預計對運行的文件應該沒有影響或者影響甚微。
However, to benefit from the changes, we suggest you get acquainted with the new version of the standard and the clarifications introduced. If, during your analysis of the clarifications you find there are differences from your current interpretation of ISO 9001:2000, then you should analyze the impact on your current documentation and make the necessary arrangements to update it. It is intended that the amendment of ISO 9001 will have minimal or no impacts on documentation.
