A new technical specification for ISO 9001 has just been published that is set to benefit organisations that want to get the most out of the quality management standard.
ISO/TS 9002, Guidelines for the application of ISO 9001:2015, provides clause-by-clause guidance and examples to enable users, regardless of the size of the organisation, to implement their own quality management system.
The new technical specification will complement ISO 9001:2015, which provides the requirements for a quality management system. Because ISO 9001 is designed to be applicable to all kinds of organisations, irrespective of size or context, the requirements of the standard are quite broad. ISO/TS 9002 provides guidance supported by in-depth explanations and examples to help organisations fully benefit from the implementation of their own quality management system.ISO/TS 9002 is ideal for organisations that want a more detailed understanding of the requirements of ISO 9001:2015, while reaping the benefits of the standard.
ISO/TS 9002 is part of ISO’s family of standards on quality management and quality management systems. The standard does not provide any additional requirements, but provides useful examples of what organisations can do so as to apply the clauses of ISO 9001 most effectively.
