Changes in FDIS 9001:2000



fdis and dis 2000

I have a copy of dis 2000. Can anyone tell me what changes were made when it became fdis 2000.

Al the Elf

I'm trying to discover if the remaining requirements for "documented procedures" in the DIS have been removed at the FDIS e.g 8.2.2, 8.3, etc. Does anyone know ?

Cheers, Al.

In ISO\DIS 9001:2000 there are, in fact, only 6 specific call outs
for documentation. These are:

a) Clause 5.5.6 - Control of Documents:
"A documented procedure shall be established:" This is followed by 7 requirements for the procedure.

b) Clause 5.5.7 - Control of Quality Records:
"A documented procedure shall be established for the identification, storage, retrieval, protection, retention time, and disposition of quality records.

c) Clause 8.2.2 - Internal Audit
"A documented procedure shall include the responsibilities and requirements for conducting audits, ensuring their independence, recording results, and reporting to management."

d) Clause 8.3 - Control of Nonconformity
"These activities shall be defined in a documented procedure."

e) Clause 8.5.2 - Corrective Action
"The documented procedure for corrective action shall define requirements for:" This is followed by 6 requirements for the procedure.

f) Clause 8.5.3 - Preventive Action
"The documented procedure for preventive action shall define requirements for:" This is followed by 4 requirements for the procedure.

Now the gray areas.

There are a number of requirements that require outcomes, outputs, reviews, actions, etc. to be recorded. These are:

a) The output of quality planning activity must be documented.

b) Results of management reviews must be recorded.

c) Planning of realization processes must be documented.

d) Results of contract reviews and subsequent follow-up actions must be recorded.

e) Results of design/development reviews and subsequent follow-up actions must be recorded.

f) Results of design/development verification and validation activities and subsequent follow-up actions must be recorded.

g) Results of supplier evaluations and subsequent follow-up actions must be recorded.

h) Occurrences of loss, damage, or other damage conditions to customer property must be recorded and reported to the customer.

j) Where no standard for the calibration of measuring and monitoring devices exists, the basis used for calibration must be recorded.

Do these requirements suggest documented procedures may be needed? In some cases it would be difficult to satisfy the requirements of the standard without a documented procedure.

And, finally, the really vague guidance found in Clauses 4.1 - General Requirements and 4.2 - General Documentation Requirements.

Clause 4.1 states, "The organization shall establish, document, implement, maintain, and continually improve a quality management system in accordance with the requirements of this Internation Standard."

Clause 4.2 states, "The quality system documentation shall include:" This is followed by 2 requirements, which are then followed by 3 conditions that could affect the presence of documentation.

However, Section 4 of the standards is OUTSIDE that portion to which companies will be audited for compliance!


Hopefully the FDIS, which is due out in the very near future, will clear up this mess. If it doesn't, I can see many disputes between companies and their registrars over just what documentation is really needed.

The movement of "Documents" and "Records" from Management Responsibility to 4 QMS and the movement of "Validation of process" within section 7 created a minor change to the clause numbers.

The balance of the changes were sentence structure with no change to the base requirements. There will be some discussion over the use of the words "enhance customer perception" rather than "achieve customer satisfaction"; but, it's my opinion that enhancement leads to achievement and "achievement" broaches perfection....(perfection is a worthy goal but not realistic in this life).

Movement within some clauses made sense and improved understanding.

Records (4.2.x) are clearly defined (minimum) by the inclusion of the trusted method (see 4.16) which now reads (see 4.2.x)

Anyway, everything that was in the DIS version is still there in the FDIS, and now we have clearly defined requirements for

Processes (yours)
System (your processes defined & working together)
Measurement (product and system processes)
Analysis (collect, analyze, and respond appropriately)
Improvement (demonstrate (trend) for product & process improvement)
