ISO 9001 – It is time to put the “document nightmare” perception away! (Part 2 of 3)

As we stated in Part 1, documentation for ISO 9001 does not need to be complex. With that being said, the next question that we are usually asked is “How do I show conformance to the standard when I don’t have a document for everything?”

In the ISO 9001 guidance document “Introduction and support package: Guidance on the documentation requirements of ISO 9001:2008”, it states the following:

“To claim conformity with ISO 9001:2008, the organization has to be able to provide objective evidence of the effectiveness of its processes and its quality management system. Clause 3.8.1 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.”

This suggestion provides an amazing amount of flexibility in showing conformance to the standard. If you need assistance with your ISO 9001 system, contact the ISO 9001 experts at G3 Solutions today!
