ISO 9001:2015 Quality Manual

Larry Whittington has developed a comprehensive, 29-page quality manual template for use by organizations new to ISO 9001:2015 and those moving to ISO 9001:2015 from ISO 9001:2008.

ISO 9001:2015 no longer requires use of a quality manual, but most organizations are choosing to keep the document and update their policies for the new and changed requirements of ISO 9001:2015.

Why are organizations making that decision?

ISO 9001:2015 still requires specific documents be maintained, e.g., quality management system scope, justifications for any not applicable requirements, quality policy, and quality objectives. The quality manual can be the repository for this required documented information.

Organizations may have complained in the past that their quality manual wasn’t useful, but faced with discarding it, they recognize it does provide a window into their quality world and a cross-reference to their procedures.

The quality manual should be written primarily for use by employees and others under the control of the organization. The document would give them an overview of the system and describe key policies. It would be a resource for internal and external auditors to better understand the system. Also, potential customers and other interested parties often request a copy of the quality manual.
