ISO 9001:2015 does not mention the existence of a quality manual. So, it is not mandatory to have a quality manual, neither is forbidden to have one. I recommend organizations to have a quality manual, but it is just a recommendation. Please check this article about mandatory documentation - List of mandatory documents required by ISO 9001:2015 - https://advisera.com/9001academy/it/knowledgebase/le-cinque-fasi-principali-della-verifica-interna-iso-9001/ist-of-mandatory-documents-required-by-iso-90012015/

The following material will provide you information about the quality manual:
