Why not use your management review process? It doesn't say you have to have a procedure for section 4, just that items such as the scope, interested parties need to be documented in something which might be called a quality manual...

If you consider the theme behind the section 4 and 6 requirements, there's a lot of "business planning" hinted at. Doing a SWOT (or similar) doesn't need a procedure. Recording the results, evaluating which risk and opportunities present themselves and developing a plan (per 6.1) is well suited to being put on the agenda of the management review.

Having just gone through the AS9100D upgrade process using this methodology, I was pleased/shocked to hear the CB auditor describe it as "best in class" as an approach...:mg:
It's a pretty suttle "hint." if you already do strategic planning it basically done.

Agreed, however, many, many of the organizations I encounter haven't done an actual strategic plan - or they did it once/twice a long time ago and have let day-to-day business get in the way...

My experience is that nearly all of the executive staff are well aware of their strategic direction. They just haven't had the need to share it with those in lower positions. Not having a strategic direction is a recipe for disaster.

We took our corrective action database and changed to option "preventive action" to "risk assessment."


There is no preventive action in the new standard and it is much easier to explain to my team that risk assessments are just a new term for preventive actions.


No new risk register to be ignored, we just latched our compliance onto a process we already do.
