I am sure this is not new but I just bumped into the TC 176 SC 2 website and saw that we can now request for an interpretation.

Not sure what happened to the 'old' interpretations - I was looking for it.


Added in edit:

however ISO/TC 176/SC2 will only accept requests for interpretations from ISO's Member Bodies (e.g. National Standards Bodies or recognized Liaison organizations).

I have not had a chance to read all of the "new interpretations", but a couple that I perused show that this process is destined to challenges.

For example, the committee answered the following question with a NO:
Can a person who is independent of the organization’s management (e.g. a consultant) undertake the role of management representative?
while saying YES to the related question
In our organization we have a management representative appointed by top management, who works for the company in a managerial capacity. He is not a permanent member of staff, but works full-time on a contract basis. Is it allowable under the standard, for such a person to act as the organization’s management representative?
The committee also $ugge$ted for interested parties to look for guidance in the ISO handbook: “ISO 9001 for Small Businesses – What to do; Advice from ISO/TC 176.

The whole premise of universal interpretation is flawed and to limit oneself to YES/NO answers make it even more difficult. I wish they would drop the interpretation process as is, OR SIGNIFICANTLY re-engineer it.

I believe the difference in the 2 answers is based in the use of the word "independent." In the second quote/interpretation, the consultant is acting as part of management and is not independent.

The problem with interpretations is the assumed meaning of words and lack of operational definitions.
