Transition From OHSAS 18001 to ISO 45001

Latest update on ISO 45001 as @ April 2017

ISO/DIS 45001.2:2017 (commonly referred to as ISO/DIS2 45001), the first global Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S) management system standard has been published.

ISO 45001 is intended to replace the widely implemented BS OHSAS 18001. It is anticipated that organisations currently certified to BS OHSAS 18001 will need to migrate to ISO 45001 within three years of the new standard’s publication as BS OHSAS 18001 is likely to be withdrawn.

It is currently envisaged by the British Standards Institute (BSI) that the next stages of the development of ISO 45001 to be:

  • From April 2017 - a four month period to allow for translations and a ballot to be held
  • From the 19th May 2017 - the draft standard will be available for review at no cost (clause by clause) on BSI’s online draft review system

The results of the ballot will determine the next stage. Publication could now be as early as November 2017 (if no Final Draft International Standard (FDIS) document is required), and as late as Q2 2018 if an FDIS is required.
