The ISO 9000 essentials - A practical handbook for implementing the ISO 9000 family of standards
|Publication Date:||1 January 2017|
The ISO 9000 series of standards was developed to assist organizations of all types and sizes to implement and operate an effective quality management system (QMS). It consists of four core standards:
a) ISO 9000:2015, Quality management systems - Fundamentals and vocabulary, describes the fundamentals of a QMS and specifies the terminology for all standards within the ISO 9000 series.
b) ISO 9001:2015, Quality management systems - Requirements, specifies requirements for a QMS, where an organization needs to demonstrate its ability to consistently provide products and services that meet customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements, and aims to enhance customer satisfaction.
c) ISO 9004:2009, Managing for the sustained success of an organization - A quality management approach, provides a wider focus on quality management than ISO 9001 in addressing the needs and expectations of all relevant interested parties, and provides guidance for the systematic and continual improvement of the organization's overall performance and achievement of sustained success. ISO 9004 is currently being revised, with the expectation of being published in early 2018.
d) ISO 19011:2011, Guidelines for auditing management systems, provides guidance on auditing any ISO management system (quality, environmental, occupational health and safety, etc.), on the management of an audit programme, on the planning and conducting of an audit of the management system, as well as on the competence and evaluation of an auditor and an audit team.
