We're here to provide information to help you manage quality, whatever the size and scope of your business! You'll find lots of free information, guidance and documentation that you can quickly and easily apply to your business.
Quality management systems
Whether you're implementing processes to satisfy customers or to improve efficiency, our ISO 9001 quality manual template can help. The quality manual templates comprise a set of easily implementable business tools that are suitable for all organizations; regardless of size, sector and industry.
Can templates help?
Organizations often address the requirements of an ISO management standard by preparing a system manual, implementing procedures and controlling processes. Templates come in handy as they allow you to concentrate on the implementation side of things, knowing that the documentation aspect is covered!
The quality manual template comes with 10 fully referenced mandatory and operational procedures, 26 forms, records and reports, internal audit checklists, process maps and guidance. Perfect for implementing new processes, or fine-tuning existing ones. All available for immediate download.
You can now purchase a range of internal audit checklists as standalone templates or as bundles, with no procedures or forms; just the audit questions!
Integrated management systems
Management system integration is about breaking down silos and aims to provide a clearer, more holistic picture of your organization; how its processes interact, and how risk is controlled.
The integrated management system manual template covers the requirements of ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001. The common requirements and goals of each standard lead to less duplication to ensure the ongoing flexibility of your business to adapt to future needs.
The integrated management system manual includes 25 integrated procedures, 40 forms, records and reports, internal audit checklists, process maps and guidance that cover the requirements of ISO 9001, 14001 & OHSAS 18001.
Getting ready for change?
The next revisions of ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 are due to be published in late 2015 and OHSAS 18001 in October 2016. The International Accreditation Forum and ISO's Committee on Conformity Assessment have agreed to a three year transition period starting from the publication date of new versions. Companies are still able to achieve certification, using our templates, during the three year transition period and have until February 2017 to attain certification to the existing standards.
Organisations can continue to audit their existing integrated management systems against the current revisions of ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 until February 2017 and OHSAS 18001 until April 2018.
Our templates offer a reliable way of achieving process based compliance to ISO 9001:2008 which will ease your organisation's eventual transition to the new version of ISO 9001:2015. You can read more about ISO 9001:2015 here. The three year transition period, begining late 2015, is plenty of time to achieve compliance even if you are beginning from scratch!
