HOW REGISTRATION WORKS
We work with you to answer questions about the registration process.
The first step is to give yourself an understanding of what a management system is and what the requirements are.
Then assess your current situation. Most organizations are already fulfilling many of the ISO requirements. You need to figure out where you are with respect to the standard and what you
need to do next (gap analysis). Companies can do this internally or externally with their registrar or through a consultant.
1) Engage top management.
2) Identify your company’s key processes and the interactions needed to meet your customer’s requirements and your organizational goals.
3) Build your system. Establish a Quality Manual that provides high-level guidance. Document your policy and objectives. For procedural documentation, start with the required six elements. Beyond that: are there any processes that you identified in your Quality Manual or that you believe need documentation? Write them.
4) Implement the system, train staff and work with what you've documented. Experience is the best measure of what will work in your company and what will not. If a procedure or form doesn't work, change it, making sure you still meet the "shall" requirements. Your employees will help to identify areas that need attention. Verify that what you have established works.
1) Once the system is in place, it should be self‐perpetuating. Through quality objectives and policy, customer feedback and internal auditing, management will be able to make informed, effective decisions on the suitability, adequacy and effectiveness of the system.
2) As the company matures with its quality system, there may be some process and product changes; these should be reflected in the documentation as well.
1) From the information collected and presented at Management Review, management will be able to make decisions towards continual improvement.
It depends on the size of your company and the complexity of your system, processes and product. It is possible to implement as quickly as 4 to 6 months, but on average may be 12 to 18 months. Prior to the registration audit, a company must have records to show implementation for at least three months.
