ISO 9001 Maintenance Procedure

ISO 9001:2015 specifies requirements for a quality management system (QMS) that an organization can use to demonstrate its ability to consistently provide products and services that meet customer and regulatory requirements. Maintenance of the QMS is essential to ensure that it remains effective and up-to-date. The maintenance procedure in ISO 9001:2015 should include the following steps:

Steps in ISO 9001 Maintenance Procedure:

  • Review and update the QMS: The organization should periodically review and update its QMS to ensure that it remains effective and aligned with business needs. This can include revising policies, procedures, and work instructions, as well as updating forms and templates.
  • Conduct internal audits: The organization should conduct internal audits to assess the effectiveness of its QMS and identify opportunities for improvement. This can include auditing processes, procedures, and records, as well as interviewing employees and reviewing customer feedback.
  • Manage nonconformities: The organization should manage nonconformities identified during audits or other quality activities. This can include determining the root cause of the nonconformity, taking corrective action to address the cause, and verifying the effectiveness of the corrective action.
  • Review performance: The organization should periodically review the performance of its QMS to ensure that it is achieving its intended outcomes. This can include analyzing data related to customer satisfaction, process performance, and other key performance indicators.
  • Manage changes: The organization should manage changes to the QMS to ensure that they are implemented effectively and do not negatively impact quality. This can include assessing the impact of changes, communicating changes to employees and stakeholders, and updating documentation as needed.
  • Document control: The organization should ensure that all QMS documents are controlled, maintained, and available to relevant personnel. This can include establishing document control procedures, maintaining document registers, and ensuring that the latest versions of documents are available to employees.

By following these steps, an organization can ensure that its QMS remains effective and aligned with business needs. Regular maintenance of the QMS is essential to achieving ongoing quality improvement and meeting customer and regulatory requirements.
