ISO 9001: 2008 and ISO 14001: 2004 have now been revised and updated. In theory, Standards are reviewed every 5 / 6 years, but in practice, the frequency has varied considerable. The new ISO 9001: 2015 & ISO 14001: 2015 were published in September 2015.
The emphasis with the update has been assisting the integration of the different Management Standards and including Risk. In particular, the changes will be based on the new ISO Supplement Annex, which provides a common wording, definitions and a top-level 10 Clause format for all Management Standards. Additionally OHSAS 18001 for Health & Safety is looking the same issues. In future it will be issued as a new ISO 45001 standard and is planned to be published in 2017.

ISO 30301: 2011, Information and documentation – Management systems for records – Requirements
ISO 22301: 2012, Societal security – Business continuity management systems – Requirements
ISO 20121: 2012, Event sustainability management systems – Requirements with guidance for use
ISO 39001: 2012, Road-traffic safety (RTS) management systems – Requirements with guidance for use
ISO/IEC 27001: 2013, Information technology – Security techniques – Information security management systems – Requirements
ISO 55001: 2014, Asset management – Requirements
All technical committees developing management system standards now have to follow the new Annex in the new consolidated ISO Supplement. The Annex SL harmonizes structure, text and terms and definitions, while leaving the standards developers with the flexibility to integrate their specific technical topics and requirements. For instance the required High Level Structure is:
