Beginners’ guide to ISO 9001

 

Here’s a round up of a few ISO 9001 posts from the past couple of years that I think will be most useful for people feeling their way with the standard, or perhaps wondering if it is right for them

ISO 9001 a short overview – a pocket sized summary of ISO 9001 requirements

Permissible exclusions explained – a summary of what can be excluded and under what circumstances

ISO 9001 & continual improvement – what the standard needs with regard to the improvement process

ISO 9001 and the process approach – the process approach explained

Quality Policy and Objectives – what you need to know to get these right

The real benefits of ISO 9001 – don’t listen to consultants. They have a vested interest and half of them have no idea about the economic realities of running a business. Here’s the low down

ISO 9001 for service providers – a translation of the jargon for my beloved followers in the service sector. You are the future

ISO 9001 Internal Auditing – a summary of what you need to know to implement an effective audit program

Changes ISO 9001:2000 to ISO 9001:2008 – a summary and explanation of these largely cosmetic and wholly disappointing set of changes

A comparison of ISO 9001 and EFQM approaches – useful for anyone wondering whether EFQM can help deliver the “next step”

You’ll find even more on these themes by browsing the ISO 9000 category in the left side bar. But these will give any new starters a a decent low down. Hope you find it useful

  1. One of the best blog in terms of implementing a standard. I am in this business (in Canada) and I can say that I found very valuable pieces of information… Keep it up!

    Thanks for the kind words, Philippe. When I started blogging, almost 4 years ago, this is the sort of response I was hoping for. I am very pleased you have found it helpful. It means a lot to me.
