Preservation of Product

It is the intention and purpose of ISO 9001:2008 QMS Standard that the organization needs to ensure to appropriately handle the product to prevent damages and mix-ups. It is the intention of the Standard that the product, during all stages of product realization from acquiring from the suppliers to the delivery to the intended destination, must be protected. Clause 7.5.5 of ISO 9001:2008 QMS Standard mentions the relevant requirements for preservation of product. According to the requirements of the Standard, during internal processing and delivery to the intended destination (= during product realization processes and also during delivery process), the organization must preserve conformity of product. This preservation must include identification, handling, packaging, storage and protection; and must apply to the constituent parts of the product.

It will be good if following precautions are taken:
(i) Mark designated area for storing product (that conform to requirements)
(ii) Mark designated area for storing nonconforming product (to avoid its mix-up with conforming product)
(iii) Store the conforming product and nonconforming product in their designated area
(iv) Control inward receipt at every stage of the product realization process
(v) Control outward release
(vi) Make proper attention to identification by marking appropriately
(vii) Make proper attention to packaging
(viii) Periodically review storage, packaging and delivery methods to intended destination

With best wishes,
