Understanding ISO 9001:2008 Quality Management System

Understanding ISO 9001:2008 Quality Management System

Chapter 8

ANNEX, BIBLIOGRAPHY AND OTHER INFORMATION (including implementation plan for ISO 9001:2008 QMS Standard)


Annex A and Annex B have been updated.

Annex A provides informative details of correspondence between ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 14001:2004 For more details, reader should refer to the Standard document ISO 9001:2008.

Annex B provides informative details of changes between ISO 9001:2000 and ISO 9001:2008 in a Table form. For more details, reader should refer to the Standard document ISO 9001:2008.

Bibliography is also updated to reflect new standards and new editions of standards. For more details, reader should refer to the Standard document ISO 9001:2008.

In short, from the study of ISO 9001:2008, we come to a conclusion that ISO 9001:2008 will be an international standard with minor revision to ISO 9001: 2000 and changes are more as clarifications to the requirements.

There will be little impact of the revision. Only a few changes in the requirements may require revision in documentation and implementation. International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and International Accreditation Forum (IAF) have announced schedule for implementation of accredited certification to ISO 9001:2008 QMS Standard. Details are mentioned below.

Implementation Plan for ISO 9001:2008 QMS Standard

International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and International Accreditation Forum (IAF) have announced schedule for implementation of accredited certification to ISO 9001:2008 QMS Standard. Both organizations have agreed on an implementation plan to ensure a smooth transition of accredited certification to ISO 9001:2008 QMS Standard.

The ISO 9001:2008 QMS Standard has been published on 15 November 2008. ISO 9001:2008 QMS Standard replaces the year 2000 version of the Standard. Certification is not a requirement of the standard, however the quality management system (QMS) of about one million organizations have been audited and certified by independent certification bodies to existing ISO 9001:2000 QMS Standard. ISO 9001 certification is frequently used in both private and public sectors to increase confidence in the products and services provided by certified organizations, between partners in business-to-business relations, in the selection of suppliers in supply chains and in the right to tender for procurement contracts.

International Organization for Standardization (ISO) is the developer and publisher of ISO 9001 Standard. ISO does not itself carry out auditing and certification to ISO 9001 Standard. These services are performed independently of ISO by certification bodies. ISO does not control such bodies. But ISO has developed voluntary International Standards to encourage good practice in their activities on a worldwide basis. ISO/IEC 17021:2006, developed and published by ISO, specifies the requirements for certification bodies carrying out auditing and certification of management systems.
Certification bodies that wish to provide further confidence in their services generally apply to be "accredited" as competent by an International Accreditation Forum (IAF) recognized national accreditation body। In India, National Accreditation Board of Certification Bodies (NABCB) is the IAF recognized national accreditation body। ISO/IEC 17011:2004, developed and published by ISO, specifies the requirements for carrying out such accreditation. International Accreditation Forum (IAF) is an international association, having membership of national accreditation bodies of 49 countries/economies. International Organization for Standardization (ISO) has a technical committee, known as ISO/TC 176, Quality management and quality assurance. This committee is responsible for the ISO 9000 family of standards. This committee is preparing a number of support documents explaining the differences between ISO 9001:2008 (forthcoming new version) and ISO 9001:2000 (the year 2000 version), why and what they mean for users. On getting approval, these documents will be posted on the ISO Web site – probably in October 2008.

International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and International Accreditation Forum (IAF) have agreed an implementation plan to ensure a smooth migration of accredited certification to ISO 9001:2008 QMS Standard, after consultation with international groupings representing quality system or auditor certification bodies, and industry users of ISO 9001 certification services. ISO 9001:2008 does not contain any new requirements. As such, ISO and IAF have recognized that ISO 9001:2008 introduces no new requirements. ISO 9001:2008 only introduces clarifications to the existing requirements of ISO 9001:2000 QMS Standard. It also introduces changes intended to improve consistency with ISO14001:2004 EMS Standard. The implementation plan and validity of certification to ISO 9001 QMS, as agreed by ISO and IAF, in relation to accredited certification is as under:(i) Accredited certification to the ISO 9001:2008 QMS Standard shall not be granted until the publication of ISO 9001:2008 QMS Standard as an International Standard. ISO 9001:2008 QMS Standard has since been published as International Standard on 15 November 2008.
(ii) Certification of conformity to ISO 9001:2008 QMS Standard and/or national equivalents (such as, IS/ISO 9001:2008 QMS Standard, in India) shall only be issued after official publication of ISO 9001:2008 (i.e after 15 November 2008) and after a routine surveillance or recertification audit against ISO 9001:2008.
(iii) One year after publication of ISO 9001:2008 QMS Standard all accredited certifications issued (new certifications or re-certifications) shall be to ISO 9001:2008 QMS Standard.
(iv) Twenty four months after publication by ISO of ISO 9001:2008 QMS Standard, any existing certification issued to ISO 9001:2000 shall not be valid.

Questions

1. What is your conclusion with regard to ISO 9001 revision?
2. What is the implementation plan for ISO 9001:2008 QMS Standard announced by International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and International Accreditation Forum (IAF)?
