ISO Background

Customer satisfaction, profitability and market leadership are driven in large part by delivering quality products and services to customers. Today, more than ever, there is a worldwide trend towards increasingly stringent customer expectations regarding quality. Accompanying this trend has been a growing realization that continuous quality improvements are often necessary to achieving and sustaining excellent economic performance.

One roadblock to providing quality products and services was the definition of what "quality" meant to different customers. Different countries, industries and governments all had varying quality systems that suppliers had to adopt in order to deliver goods around the world. A single worldwide standard was needed to simplify international standards.The result:

The International Organization for Standardization (ISO)

This gave rise to ISO - the International Organization for Standardization. Located in Switzerland, ISO is the specialized international agency for standardization and the source of ISO 9000. Established in 1947, it is comprised of the national standards bodies of 140 countries, working together to produce more than 13,000 International Standards for business, government and society.

ISO is made up of approximately 180 Technical Committees. Each Technical Committee is responsible for one of many areas of specialization. According to ISO,

"The object of ISO is to promote the development of standardization and related world activities with a view to facilitating international exchange of goods and services and to developing cooperation in the sphere of intellectual, scientific, technological and economic activity."

The results of ISO technical work are published as international standards. Many people think that ISO stands for International Standards Organization. They are close, but actually mistaken. The official name of the organization is French and translates to The International Organization for Standardization. ISO is Greek for equal. Some examples of where ISO is used in language today include weather reports - isobars areas of equal pressure or isotherms areas of equal temperature, and in geometry isosceles triangles have equal sides.

The International Organization for Standardization is an organization made up of member nations that develop standards for everything from electronics to management systems. Representatives from the member nations develop specifications and standards. The acceptance of a new or revised standard is by vote, each country getting one vote. The process itself is much more complex involving committees and subcommittees to develop and write the standards, but to accept a proposed standard, each nation has one vote and no nation outvotes another.

The introductory section of ISO 9001 QMS also contains information on the following:

-ISO 9000 and ISO 14000
-Overview of ISO 9001:2000
-Quality Systems
-Certification, Registration and Accreditation
-ISO Definitions

Manual Preparation

This prototype ISO 9000:2000 Policies and Procedures Manual has been developed to assist organizations in preparing for ISO 9001:2000 certification, which can be custom tailored to fit one's individual company concerns and operations.

The language style and usage is generally representative of practices in companies in the United States. When you edit and construct a policy it should be easy to read, to the point and convey a message that is clearly understood by both the employee and the management staff.

When you have completed your Quality Manual and Quality Procedures, have a team of managers review them and make appropriate comments. After corrections, you may want your company attorney to review the draft for compliance with federal state and local laws. The corrected and finished product is then ready for distribution. But remember, building a Quality Management System is not an event, it is a continuous process so revisions will be required from time to time.

Considerations in writing your manual

It is now common practice to use pronouns that are applicable to either sex or to use his or her, or the more personal and direct, "you". Social changes influence policies on topics concerning smoking, physical fitness, etc.

Have your manual reviewed by an attorney to ensure that you are in compliance with all applicable federal, state, and local laws.

Define terms used in your manual. Definitions should be placed in each procedure as needed.

Revisions

Every organization is dynamic and in some state of change. This will lead to changes to policies from time to time. Revisions should be completed and sent to all personnel who hold a copy of the manual. The revision should have an effective date and of course should be distributed in advance of the effective date. When making a change to your manual be cognizant that the language might have an indirect impact on other policies. And finally, make sure that there is a clear record of revisions made and that all employees have current information in a timely manner.

The Quality Manual as well as each procedure includes a revision section at the end. It is important to keep this revision section up-to-date. It will be the only way to ensure that distributed copies of your manual are current.

Style and Format

1.  Use a cover or title page.
2.  Include a table of contents.
3.  Put policy statements on a 8 1/2" x 11 " page and print only on one side to make revisions easier.
4.  Organize material by major headings for easy reference.
5.  Include an alphabetized index if your manual is lengthy.
6.  Avoid a detailed paragraph identification systems of numbers and letters as this will detract from its' readability and the message will be lost.
7.  Write in simple easy to understand statements to avoid confusion. Some companies include sample administrative forms with their procedures along with instructions for their completion. This product includes a forms section for use at your discretion in the tabbed section in the back of publication.

Quality Manual

This first step in building a Quality Management System is the creation of a "Quality Manual". This is a separate and distinct step from developing quality procedures. The purpose is to state in a concise and brief format, the policies and objectives of the company required to achieve a desired level of quality for the organization or division.

More than likely the input for the Quality Manual will come from your customers. It is the customer that drives the Quality Process. There requirements, needs, and future desires are the basis for implementing an ISO 9000 quality system in the first place.

At a minimum, the Quality Manual is required to address each one of the paragraphs of the applicable ISO Series that the company plans to become registered against. ISO 9001:2000 is the focus of this manual. But, you may need to expand the scope to include EMS 14001, QS-9000, AS-9000, or other industry specific quality requirements.

Each area that is written should include, at a minimum, three parts: Scope, Policy and Responsibilities.

-The Scope portion should simply state the purpose of the covered area.
-The Policy portion should state the company policy regarding the applicable ISO clause.
-The Responsibility portion should state who, in generic titles or positions, is responsible for the policy.

ISO 9000 does not require a specific format for the Quality Manual. A sample manual is provided in this guide for your use as a template to create your own Quality Manual. The Quality Manual Table of Contents is based on the ISO 9000 standard itself. This ensures that each required element is addressed and provides an excellent starting point for building your Quality System.
