ISO 9001:2015 Clause 7.5.3 Control of documented information


PLAN

DO

CHECK

ACT

 

Clause 7.5.3 is subdivided into two untitled requirements.

 

Both sub clauses of 7.5.3 define requirements that 'shall' be met to embrace the requirements of ISO 9001-2015

 

The key word 'shall', meaning a command, an obligation required to be met.

 

7.5.3.1 Details how the documented information required by ISO 9001-2015 and your quality management system 'shall' be controlled to ensure;

 

it's available, where and when required and is suitable for use

it is adequately protected

 

7.3.5.2 Details specific activities in regards to the control of documented information which 'shall' address the

 

distribution, access, retrieval and use;

storage and preservation, including preservation of legibility;

control of changes (e.g. Version control);

retention and disposition.

 

Organisations should also note that documented information of external origin determined by the organisation to be necessary for the planning and operation of the quality management system shall be identified as appropriate, and be controlled.

 

Again there is nothing new and was previously covered by clauses 4.2.3 c to g and 4.2.4 for the documentation requirements of ISO 9001-2008.

 

All of the requirements of this clause can be met using DICS - Document Issuing and Control system my On Safe Lines QHSE Software Ltd, see link below to learn more.

 

In the example below it shows a software program Audited Manager being controlled and issued to three locations.
