ISO 9001 in its latest version of 2015 does not require a quality manual. So, a quality manual is no longer mandatory. However, as a consultant working with organizations, I recommend developing a quality manual. 

Since it is no longer mandatory, we are free to design its content. I recommend designing a document that presents the quality management system. Presenting:

  • your organization and its history
  • the scope of the quality management system
  • its quality policy
  • its model of working based on the process approach 

 In plain English would be something like:

  • Who are we?
  • To whom do we work?
  • What are our priorities?
  • How do we work? 

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