My organization has the head office in Kuwait which is ISO 9001:2015 certified company. We are operating our branch offices of the Kuwait office in U.A.E and Bahrain. For our U.A.E office, we have another ISO 9001:2015 certificates.
My question is: The QMS documents of my head office can be used for UAE office or need separate QMS Documentations. If can or can`t please give your advice as to the reason why?
Note: The UAE office certification is done with a simple QMS manual without any procedures and RACI of procedures, Forms, and template, etc.
ISO 9001:2015 do not require the use of a QMS manual. So, your UAE office can decide the content of its QMS manual. What is important is that what is applicable to the Kuwait office is also applicable to U.A.E office. Same quality policy? Same process map?
If U.A.E office uses the QMS manual from Kuwait office I, as a lead auditor would like to see if your office belongs to the distribution list of the Kuwait office to ensure that updated versions are sent to your office.
