What is Annex SL About?

What is Annex SL About?

Annex SL

Annex SL is the standard that defines the new high level structure for all ISO management systems standards.

WHAT IS ANNEX SL?

Annex SL provides the new high level structure for ISO management systems standards – it replaces the historical ISO Guide 83 and expands on the base structure already implemented.

It has been created to introduce identical core text and common terms and definitions.  This will:
streamline standards
encourage standardisation
ease the integration of management systems

NEW HIGH LEVEL STRUCTURE OF CLAUSES

The numbered list below is the a replica of the numbered sections of the high level structure – the specific requirements of each management standard will be found within these sections.

1. Scope
2. Normative References
3. Terms and Definitions
4. Context of the Organization
5. Leadership
6. Planning
7. Support
8. Operation
9. Performance Evaluation
10. Improvement

PRACTICAL IMPLICATIONS

Annex SL will only affect future management systems standards – for example ISO 9001:2008 will not be affected, but the new ISO 9001:2015 will follow the structure, core text and definitions of Annex SL.
