Re: AS9100 Certification Scope Content

AS9100 clause 4.2.2c says that the manual needs to either contain or reference the procedures. This means that you could have one "big honkin' manual" that includes all of the information, or you could have a much smaller manual that is very high-level. I prefer to have a relatively short manual, so I just reference the procedures in the manual.
Thanks to howste for your informative Post and/or Attachment!

Yes, I agree, it should. A reference page to Level II procedures will comply for the QM. Your Level III work instructions can be referenced in the Level II procedures. Keep your QM short with your business model in mind. The quantity should be the work instructions.

Remember that the quality manual is often requested by customers and other agencies. It should not contain information that is confidential or proprietary. If you consolidate everything into the quality manual, you risk revealing information you might not want in the public domain.

FMS-Steve,

These days the Quality Manual is a brief description of the management system that is especially useful for new employees.

It refers to the procedures either in the text or via an attachment that lists the procedures and process owners.

Do not rewrite the system standard for auditors (although this used to be common practice).

Try writing it in the present tense so it describes what actually happens instead of what shall happen. This makes it much easier to read and understand.

John
