We are in the process of reviewing our policies and procedures to be compliant with the ISO 9001: 2015 standard. When converting from ISO 9001: 2008 to ISO 9001: 2015, how should the version control be handled? Should we start at 0 again or move on to the next number?
I would recommend that the site does not re-number the revisions to zero. The revision number should be used only for new procedures.
