Since the 1987 version, ISO 9001 has been changing the designation of what is used to ensure the validity of results. I remember that the first one was something like “Inspection, Measuring and Test Equipment”, in the 2000 version became “Control of Monitoring and Measuring Devices”. Both ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 9001:2008 only include the definition of measuring equipment. Measuring equipment is a general designation that includes things like measuring instruments, software, reference materials (it can be a picture or an oil with a certain viscosity). According to the dictionary, a device can be a measuring instrument or combination of instruments among other things. I believe that the ISO 9001:2015 adoption of the term “resources” was a way of using a general designation that can be applied in several fields. For example, people use masks to check results of psychological tests more easily. Is it a piece of equipment? A device? An instrument? I cannot give you a definite answer because in these cases I just want to work with ISO 9001 definitions.
