ISO 9001 - Identify the Root Cause of the Nonconformity.
Identifying the root cause of a non-conformity is an essential step in the corrective action process in ISO 9001. Here are some steps to help you identify the root cause of a non-conformity:
Review the non-conformity report: Carefully read the non-conformity report to understand the problem, the context in which it occurred, and the specific requirements that were not met.
Gather information: Collect information on the non-conformity by reviewing relevant documents, interviewing people involved, and observing the process.
Use a root cause analysis tool: Use a tool like the "5 Whys" or the "Fishbone Diagram" to identify the underlying causes of the non-conformity.
The "5 Whys" method involves asking "why" questions repeatedly until you get to the underlying cause of the problem.
The "Fishbone Diagram" is a visual tool that helps to identify the possible causes of a problem.
Verify the root cause: Once you have identified the root cause, verify it by checking that it is supported by the evidence you have collected.
Take corrective action: Once you have identified the root cause, take corrective action to address it and prevent it from recurring in the future.
Monitor effectiveness: Monitor the effectiveness of the corrective action to ensure that the non-conformity is resolved and does not occur again.
By following these steps, you can effectively identify the root cause of a non-conformity and take corrective action to prevent it from happening again in the future.
