QMS, Quality Manual, Quality Procedures and Quality Management Plan

What's the difference between QMS, Quality Manual, Quality Procedures and Quality Management Plan? When do all these need to be developed? Does an ISO certified, IMS implemented organization, working as a design, construction supervision, O&M and facility management company requires to develop QMP when it already has all IMS documents?

A QMS, as ISO 9000:2015 defines, is part of a management system related to quality. While implementing a QMS an organization may develop non-mandatory documents like a Quality Manual, a kind of the QMS’s identity card, Quality procedures, documents that set rules about how organizations should act in certain circumstances. Concerning what is a Quality Management Plan, that terminology is not very common with ISO 9001:2015. So, different people may mean different things. For example, a QMP may mean how the QMS is applied in a particular project.

Companies that work on a project basis, like construction companies, normally have to develop a QMP for each project. Many times it is a client request.
