  • Intergaci√≥n de procedimientos

    Hola, queremos implantar las tres normas, 9001, 14001 y 45001, en este caso nos surge una duda, queríamos saber qué consejo nos daríais a la hora de decidir si deberíamos integrar en un mismo documento los tres procedimientos siguientes o si los haríais por separado, y que ventajas e inconvenientes le veis a ello. Los procedimientos serían los siguientes:

    • Procedimiento para abordar riesgos y oportunidades
    • Procedimiento dentro del plan de seguridad y salud ocupacional para abordar riesgos y oportunidades
    • Procedimiento identificación y evaluación de riesgos y aspectos ambientales
  • "Shall" statement

    I was wondering that how can we prove to the audit that a "shall" statement is fulfilled when there is no requirement in the standard about documenting the evidence of it?

  • The Auditing Process

    Please can you advise if the following is correct approach when auditing the various business areas we are in the second year of ISO Certification heading toward our first Surveillance Audit:

    The audit approach is this:
    1. Review previous comments made during Stage 2 Audit and design question accordingly.
    2. Design questions as per the process input/activity/output to establish evidence.
    3. Review Quality Management Principles to establish if the business area has applied Improvement, has leadership engaged staff, managed relationships with interested parties etc. and design questions accordingly.
    4. Review Risk Register to establish if the applicable risks to the area has been mitigated and if there are new risks and design questions accordingly.
    5. Review Goals and Objectives to establish if the targets have been achieved (process/business area dependents) and design questions accordingly.
    Other questions like do your new staff members aware of the Quality Policy and were it is situated.

    We are a small company so it makes sense for us to do the audits in one go with the above mentioned approach. It also reinforces the ISO principles and what is ISO all about with middle management.  

    Let me know what you think.

  • ISO 9001 exclusions

    I have an question with exclusions to the ISO 9001:2015. Since we do not do design and development we have been excluding this. However, when the new standard came into effect our external auditor said we can not exclude this section without replacing it. He suggested production management.
    From all the readings i have been doing on-line, I havent read you need to replace not exclude.
    Is this true? Can you clarify this exclusion?
