Example text

The previous ISO 9001:1994, ISO 9002:1994 and ISO 9003:1994 standards have now been consolidated into a single revised ISO 9001:2000 standard. Organisations that previously used ISO 9002:1994 and ISO 9003:1994 are allowed to be certified to ISO 9001:2000 through a ‘reduction in scope’ of the standard’s requirements by omitting requirements that do not apply to their particular organisation. ISO 9001:2000 is focused towards ‘providing confidence, as a result of demonstration, in product conformance to established requirements’ and includes a section entitled ‘permissible exclusions’.

Clause 4 has been written around the 1994 version of ISO 9000 and emphasises the need for: ᭹ ᭹ ᭹ ᭹ ᭹ ᭹ a quality manual (containing quality policy statement, supporting procedures and a formalised document control system – so very much the same as ISO 9001:2000); procedures for the review of requests, tenders and contracts; purchase control (including subcontractor management); corrective and preventive action (including control of non-conforming product and cause analysis); control of records (particularly technical records); regular internal and management audits.

An organisation should ensure that its leaders: ᭹ ᭹ ᭹ ᭹ ᭹ ᭹ ᭹ ᭹ ᭹ ᭹ ᭹ are aware of the results the process is achieving; define the objectives of the organisation’s processes; define a process that will achieve specific objectives; determine the stages in the process necessary to achieve the results; determine the activities required to accomplish each process stage; determine the competence required of the people performing these activities; determine the measurements required to verify process inputs and outputs; determine the measurements required to establish process efficiency and effectiveness; determine the information and resource requirements needed to achieve the process objectives; determine the sequence and interaction of activities within the process; evaluate possible risks, consequences and impacts of processes on customers, suppliers and other stakeholders of that process; Background to the ISO 9001:2000 standard 13 ᭹ ᭹ ᭹ ᭹ ᭹ ᭹ ᭹ establish clear responsibility, authority and accountability for managing the process; identify the customers, suppliers and other stakeholders of the process; identify the inputs and outputs of the process; identify the interfaces between the processes within the organisation; measure process outputs, efficiency and effectiveness; take action to prevent use or delivery of non-conforming inputs or outputs until remedial action has been effected; take action to eliminate the cause of non-conforming inputs or outputs.
