ISO 9001:2000 to ISO 9001:2008 - Identification in meeting notes.

Hello

We have a small confusion we updated the quality manual according to the changes as per ISO 9001:2008 and conducted the management review meeting after that, while preparing the minutes to what standard we have to mention whether its 9001:2000 or 9001:2008. Shortly we are going to have the external audit for ISo9001:2008.

Even on the display of quality policy which standard we have to mention whether 2000 or 2008.
We are a bit confused as we are approved for 9001:2000 not for 9001:2008 so are we able to put 9001:2008 or not in the minutes of meeting and the quality policy disply.

Hello,

My advise to avoid that kind of confusion:

Eliminate the 2000 or 2008. Put only ISO 9001 period.
That's what i do and never had any problems with it.
Salutations,

Since there are no changed requirements, I wouldn't worry too much about it. ISO 9001:2008 meets the requirements of ISO 9001:2000. If you reviewed your system against the 2008 version, I'd list that in the records.

Why does your quality policy have to mention which version? :confused: If you mention ISO 9001 at all in the policy, I'd just leave the date off.

If you had updated or switch-over to the new version, it had to be 2008 if you choose to keep the year.

I totally agree with harry. Its good that the outputs, i.e. reviewed manual and reviewed policy, reflect the updated version of the standard against which these are reviewed.

Its no matter whether you have gone through certification audit against 2008 version or not. If you have not mentioned the version of standard on reviewed documents, a sensible auditor might ask you while documentation review that against which standard you have reviewed your documents.

In fact, certification audit against 2008 version needs documents that are already reviewed against the same standard.

Hope it helps!

You can change all documents to new standard and get audited as per new standard.But if you donot change to new standard now the auditors will audit and confirm you in the name of old standard.

:sarcasm:It just makes me tingle and get all covered with goosebumps when folks state with authority what "I", an auditor, will do or am going to do.

Steve is right, just leave off the date and prevent a self inflicted injury

I don't believe this is an accurate statement, if you are speaking of CB auditors.

There's a time when CBs expect the client will update their system. If a client has a system based on an obsolete standard, and the 'upgrade' deadline has passed, they must audit to the current version, no matter what the client's quality system is based on. If it hasn't been updated, a non-conformance will ensue........
