ISO 9001 Question

My company fluctuates between just me and maybe 6 employees, being engineers and drafters. My company is an engineering consultancy providing engineering advice to clients to resolve problems, or provide them with engineering studies and design projects of civil earthworks. The work normally culminates in a report of some kind along with drawings and specifications – All termed Deliverables. We also provide technical supervision of the construction of the dams that we designed. A separate construction contractor performs the construction reporting directly to the client. We don’t produce any physical products, only reports and specifications and drawings. I’m wondering then, what exclusions from ISO9001 might apply to my company?

ISO 9001:2015 prefers using the term non-applicability of clauses. Only clauses from section 8 may be considered as non-applicable.

8.1 is very general and applicable to all organizations, 8.2 is about commercial activities, every organization has commercial activities. 8.3 is about design and development and it is applicable since it is your main service. 8.4 is about purchasing relevant to the service and it is applicable. 8.5 may be applicable to the service of technical supervision of the construction of the dams and it is also applicable to your design work. Your job is designing projects (both 8.3 and 8.5). You have quality control, check calculations, check test results and you sometimes have errors, mistakes, failures. So, clauses 8.6 and 8.7 are still applicable. I think that even subclause 8.5.3 is applicable once your customer may give you drawings, information where intellectual property or business secrets may be relevant.
