International standard ISO 45001 “Occupational health and safety management systems – Requirements with guidance for use” will probably not be published in 2017 anymore. At the international PC 283 meeting in Toronto (2016) for discussing the comments from the draft (DIS 1) was agreed that a second draft of the standard (DIS 2) is required. The final meeting of the Working Group (WG 1) for discussing all comments and objections as well for preparing DIS 2 took place in February 2017 in Vienna. Thus, DIS 2 was not finished before March/April 2017 and the final draft (FDIS) is not expected until October/November 2017. With this background, the publication of DIN ISO 45001 “Occupational health and safety management systems – Requirements with guidance for use” is expected for spring 2018. Source: www.iso.org
