ISO 9001:2015 Gap Checklist – Upgrade checklist for ISO 9001
This ISO 9001:2015 gap analysis checklist is intended to be used as a tool to identify compliance with the differences between ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 9001:2015.
The utilization of this checklist, when populated with objective evidence of compliance and non-compliance, will satisfactorily demonstrate you have audited the differences between the 2015 standard versus 2008. It should be used with your certification body as evidence of internal audits to the additional new ISO 9001:2015 requirements and will help you identify whether you need to do anything more to meet the 2015 changes.
The purchase of the gap checklist comes with ½ hour of email or phone consulting support to help answer questions and provide some guidance. If you want a trained and certified auditor to assess the gap for you, just contact us for a quote.
ISO 9001:2015 and/or ISO 14001:2015 Condensed Management System Manual Template – A condensed quality/environmental manual to support the 2015 changes
This manual can serve as an ISO 9001, ISO 14001 or integrated management system manual for multiple standards. It supports the requirements in ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 even though a management system manual is no longer required. There are still items that are required to be documented that are logical to maintain in a central management system manual. This format of approximately 5 pages has been used successfully for over 10 years for AS9100, ISO/IATF16949 and ISO 9001 clients without any findings. This is a proven condensed template that has been audited to the existing standards by more than 16 certification bodies without any findings over the last 10 years.
If you’re interested in getting rid of your quality manual binder and going to a condensed, value-added manual, then check out what can be possible. At our price you can’t afford not to take a look and consider this established and verified management system manual.
This is not a cut and paste with just inserting your company name. It must be customized for your business to be successful, and there are instructions provided for the different sections. As a Word document you can cut and paste this into your document control templates and format for control.
