Presentation on theme: "DOCUMENTATION REQUIREMENTS Based on ISO 9001:2008"— Presentation transcript:


2 The quality management system documentation shall include the following.
Documented statements of a quality policy and quality objective. The quality policy ensures clear focus of quality across the organization and direct employee activities on quality, customer focus and continual improvement. The quality objective ensures that customer requirements are met and also continually improve the performance of the organization through the quality management system. They will be set and they will be reviewed in management review meetings. A quality manual. The quality manual shows the scope of quality management system; incorporating details of justification for any exclusion (it shows functional organization structure) Documented procedures and records required by the international standards. Documents including records, determined by the organization to be necessary to ensure the effective planning, operation and control of its processes.(quality manuals & quality procedures)

3 The extent of quality management system documentation can differ/change from one organization to another due to the following factors- The size of organization and type of activities The complexity of processes and their interactions. The competence /ability of personnel/workers. The quality manual The organization shall establish and maintain a quality manual that includes, The scope of the quality management system, including details of and justification/explanation for any exclusion /leaving out. The documented procedures established for quality management system, or reference to them. A Description of interaction between the processes of the quality management system.

4 Control of document Documents required by the quality management system shall be controlled, and documented procedures shall be established to define the controls needed. To approve documents for adequacy prior to issue To review and update as necessary and re-approve documents To ensure that changes and the current revision status of documents are identified To ensure that relevant versions of applicable documents are available at points of use. To ensure that documents remain legible and readily identifiable. To ensure that documents of external origin determined by the organization to be necessary for the planning and operation of the quality management system are identified and their distribution controlled. To prevent the unintended use of obsolete documents and to apply suitable identifiable to them if they are retained for any purpose.

5 Controls of records Records established to provide evidence of conformity to requirements and of effective operation of the quality management system shall be controlled. The organization shall establish a documented procedure to define the controls needed for the identification, storage, protection, retrieval, retention, and disposition of records. Storage of records, Records shall be stored in either soft or hard copy. Protection, All records shall be protected against damage; soft copy shall be protected from heat, dust, water and magnetic field. Hard copy records shall be protected from heat, dust, water, and kept in a safe place. Records shall remain legible, readily identifiable and retrievable.


7 Demonstrating conformity with QMS Standard & Objective Evidence
It may be able to demonstrate conformity without the need for extensive documentation. The organization has to be able to provide objective evidence of the effectiveness of its processes and its quality management system. Clause of ISO 9000:2005 defines “objective evidence” as “data supporting the existence or variety of something” and notes that “objective evidence may be obtained through observation, measurement, test, or other means.” Objective evidence does not necessarily depend on the existence of documented procedures, records or other documents, except where specifically mentioned in ISO 9001:2008. In some cases, (for example, in clause 7.1(d) Planning of product realization, and clause Monitoring and measurement of product), it is up to the organization to determine what records are necessary in order to provide this objective evidence.   Where the organization has no specific internal procedure for a particular activity, and this is not required by the standard, (for example, clause 5.6 Management Review), it is acceptable for this activity to be conducted using as a basis the relevant clause of ISO 9001:2008. In these situations, both internal and external audits may use the text of ISO 9001:2008 for conformity assessment purposes.

8 Objectives of documentation:
a)   Communication of Information as a tool for information transmission and communication. The type and extent of the documentation will depend on the nature of the organization’s products and processes, the degree of formality of communication systems and the level of communication skills within the organization, and the organizational culture. b)   Evidence of conformity provision of evidence that what was planned, has actually been done. c)    Knowledge sharing to disseminate and preserve the organization’s experiences. A typical example would be a technical specification, which can be used as a base for design and development of a new product.  Documents may be in any form or type of medium, examples: paper, magnetic electronic or optical computer disc , photograph, master sample

9 DOCUMENTATION the amount and detail of documentation required to be more relevant to the desired results of the organization’s process activities. the minimum amount of documentation needed in order to demonstrate the effective planning, operation and control of its processes and the implementation and continual improvement of the effectiveness of its QMS. It is stressed that ISO 9001 requires (and always has required) a “Documented quality management system”, and not a “system of documents”. Any documentation approach that you adopt should always provide value-added for the management of your quality system, not simply meet the auditor’s/ registrar's requirements.

10 Terms and Definitions relating to Documents
Document - Information and its supporting medium Procedure - Specified way to carry out an activity or a process  (Note: Procedures can be documented or not) Quality Manual - Document specifying the quality management system of an organization Quality Plan - Document specifying which procedures and associated resources shall be applied by whom and when to a specific project, product, process or contract Record - Document stating results achieved or providing evidence of activities performed Specification - Document stating requirements

13 Additional Documents to ADD VALUE
An organization could add value to its QMS and demonstrate conformity by the preparation of other documents, even though the standard does not specifically require them. Examples may include: - Process maps, process flow charts and/or process descriptions - Organization charts - Specifications - Work and/or test instructions - Documents containing internal communications - Production schedules - Approved supplier lists - Test and inspection plans - Quality plans All such documents have to be controlled in accordance with the requirements of clause and/or 4.2.4, as applicable
