thanks for the basic guidance.i have red the group discussions and my first question is that what standards of ISO will be included in preparation of quality manual for wood manufacturing company.i mean which standards are relevent,because there are many iso,s
and i am confused ,.
We don't know the company so cannot be specific. The best guess is to look at all the standards under an ISO Technical Committee relating to the area.
In your case this is ISO - ISO/TC 218 - Timber
(clickable). You can usually look at the scope within ISO's Online Browsing Platform and see whether it applies to you. For example: ISO 16415:2012(en), Non-structural timber grading requirements
, section 1.
Here you'd find the (publically accessible) statement "This International Standard delineates and illustrates broad grade categories that specify essential features typically found in those categories based on commonalities of numerous national standards and grading rules used for non-structural timber of non-coniferous and coniferous species in international commerce. It provides a basis for recognition of a national standard or grading rules that comply with this International Standard and is applicable to all methods of visual grading systems for non-structural timber of all non-coniferous and coniferous species of timber.
Non-structural timber produced from bamboo is not covered in this International Standard."
You find keywords like grade categories for non-structural timber and methods of visual grading. The species to which it does (non-coniferous and coniferous species), and definitely does not (bamboo) apply. Go from there to decide or disprove applicability.
The important thing to realize though is that, absent technical standards that grade material or determine material composition, most things will be determined from your specifications for your product. You should (and only you can) establish these in line with regulatory requirements and customer needs.
*I love wood as a material. I don't work in the industry though. This is how I would approach a cross from my sector (medical devices) into a new sector in your role.
