The intent of this field guide is to assist organizations, step by step, in implementing a QMS in conformance with ISO 9001:2015, whether “from scratch” or by transitioning from ISO 9001:2008. Within the guide each sub-clause containing requirements is the focus of a two-page spread that consistently presents features that fulfill the requirements listed below.This book examines each sub-clause of clauses 4–10 of ISO 9001:2015, which contain the requirements, with a visual representation provided in flowchart format on the facing page.
This field guide will:
Provide a user-friendly guide to ISO 9001:2015’s requirements for implementation purposes
Identify the documents/documentation required, along with recommendations on what to consider retaining/adding to a QMS during ISO 9001:2015 implementation
Guide internal auditor(s) regarding what to ask to verify that a conforming and effective QMS exists
Direct management on what it must do and should consider to satisfy ISO 9001:2015’s enhanced requirements and responsibilities for top management
Depict step by step what must occur to create an effective, conforming QMS
What separates this field guide from most other books on ISO 9001:2015 and its implementation are the flowcharts showing the steps to be taken in implementing a QMS to meet a sub-clause’s requirements. As the flowcharts themselves can be overwhelming when you first look at them, a text box appears with each flow chart that explains pertinent facts and/or what the flowchart represents and how it is to be used.
