Answer:
Adding or removing suppliers, is not related with clause 6.3
“2. When the format of a particular ISO format changes, organizational changes, equipment changes or facility change we use the change request form. Is this the correct explanation?”
Answer:
Changing forms is not related with clause 6.3. Clause 6.3 is about planning how to handle changes without breaking the quality management system. For example, when an organization moves to a new location, or introduces a set of new production equipment it is necessary to plan the introduction of these changes in a controlled way. Last year I worked with an injection molding company that duplicated the number of machines and changed location to another site, with a lot of new workers recruited – that was a great change in planning, operating and controlling production. 6.3 is about changes like this.

Some years ago, I worked with a machine manufacturin g company. One of their operations was painting parts of the machines. Then, due to stricter environmental legislation they decided to subcontract that operation to a painting services specialist. They had to change their production planning and quality control to consider the new flow of production. 6.3 is about changes like this.

The following material will provide you information about planning and controlling changes:
