Hi everybody

Do you think if the "Risk" word adds value when including it into the quality Policy? In ISO 9001 2015.
The standard doesn´t require it or at least as such.

Thanks for your input

Can you provide a sample of how you would word it.

NOTE: the policy is the road map and the vision of top management.

The true value is when you start incorporation risk assessment / mitigation in your processes (internal / External).

Whether or not it would add value likely depends on:

- context of your organization
- what you learn when you do a stakeholder analysis and SWOT
- quality objectives

I would not add risk to the Quality Policy because it them must also be addressed in quality objectives per 5.2.1 b) which states that the Quality Policy “provides a framework for setting quality objectives”. Its not required by 5.2.1 or 5.2.2 and since it is linked to Section 6.2, what risk quality objective(s) would you use.

After years of real world implementation I have found that most organization over think the requirements of ISO 9001.

As well as overthink the requirements of the Quality Policy. Don't make your life more complicated than it needs to be, and do not needlessly commit your organization to anything they don't want to / can't effectively do / would add more work with no added value.

Not to say that this couldn't be done in a professional manner, but nobody ever gave or withheld a million dollar order from a company because of their Quality Policy.
