As I see it 9001:2000 does not require job descriptions in the conventional sense (someone correct me if I am missing something). However, there are other good reasons to have them. In the past I have had good luck doing a Google search for job descriptions to give me ideas on content, appropriate titles, etc. But make sure they fit YOUR comapny's needs.

It is however a requirement to define competency requirements for jobs - same difference ?

Not IMO. You must ensure people are competent to perform their assigned tasks, but ISO does not necessarily require that be accomplished by writing "job descriptions" in the way I think of them - i.e.
______________

IMO, a job description alone may not satisfy all ISO requirements for ensuring competence, but can be used as one tool in that effort, but it typically fulfills other HR needs.

Clause 6.2.2 says 'The organisation shall a) determine the necessary competence.......'

Which is often written in Job Descriptions, including the one you posted where it talks of qualifications, experience, and personal attributes. Admittedly they contain more besides, such as duties, reporting lines etc.

Martin,

All I'm saying is that, IMO, a job description alone will not usually suffice to adequately determine competence. At least not in my eyes. I may say in my job description "position requires 2 year degree in mechanical engineering and ability to do MIG welding". Just because I hire a person with those qualifications does not necessarily mean he/she will perform the job I need to be done competently. Maybe they MIG welded auto bodies, while I need structural members for a steel building or pipes for a boiler welded. If it is me, this JD is the first hurdle only, I will ensure competence in other ways as well, perhaps by watching him/her actually perform the task in my company adequately, etc.

You are correct, a job description does not determine competence, it determines competency requirements - competence is then determined against these requirements by, for example, testing, monitoring of work, interview, etc
