I am trying to understand ISO 9001:2015, clause 8.5.1 f. We are a small company that purchases various "powders", mixes different product together, sometimes bakes them and sells the result (still a powder) to the electronic business to manufacturer electronic components.
Of course we are in the process of reviewing, understanding , and implementing the new standard.
Right now I am trying to understand how our company complies to 8.5.1 f) or can we say this is not applicable to our business?
Validation is applied when the final product cannot be verified by other means. This activity is often excluded and you can say it is not applicable to your business if you can check your final product against product requirements and verify its compliance.
