I purchased the Risks and Opportunities procedure and registry from you on Friday, May 18th. I’m a bit confused on who should be in charge of this procedure. Should it be the President of the company or the Quality Manager??
Also, I’m a little confused about the registry. Can’t I just use the FMEA for parts that we produce for our customers? I have to do FMEA’s for all my parts anyways, wouldn’t this be acceptable for my certification audit ? (which is Thursday and Friday of this week).
It is up to the organization to decide whether the responsible of the procedure is the president of the company or the quality manager. Usually the quality manager is responsible for directing the risk and opportunity assessment while the organization´s top management is responsible for creating the risk management committee and providing the resources needed to assess and manage the risks. Nevertheless, the procedure is not a mandatory document within the QMS.
It is important to note that the requirements in ISO 9001:2015 are to analyze the ris ks within your QMS and then decide what actions need to be taken. This doesn´t even need to be maintained as documented information. If you already do this ( analyze risks with FMEA analysis and take actions based on that analysis) as part of your business strategy the you already meet the requirements of ISO 9001:2015 and will be acceptable for your certification audit. Remember you will also need to address the opportunities and this cannot be done through a FMEA analysis, but you can conduct a simple brainstorming session with the relevant people of your organization.
