Interpreting principles and requirements

Plan - Criteria & Methods

This is the 'Plan' part of the PDCA process. Define the criteria and methods needed to ensure that both the operation and control of your processes is effective. This is often implemented using stated objectives, work instructions or procedures as required for consistent process output.

Process Approach
PLAN - Criteria & Methods
ISO 9001:2015, ISO 14001:2015 & OHSAS 18001:2007
Step 1Plan: Understanding the Context of the Organization. Analyse the organization’s context and its market requirements. Determine the processes needed to fulfil and exceed those expectations. Develop your quality manual and define process interactions. 4.1 Understanding Context
4.2 Interested Parties
4.3 Determining Scope
4.4 Management System Processes
Step 2Plan: Leadership. Assign roles responsibilities and authorities, define and communicate your policies. Provide positive commitment and direction. 5.1 Leadership & Commitment
5.2 Policies
5.3 Roles, Responsibility & Authority
Step 3Plan: Planning for the management system. Define objectives and plan for the effects of and change. Assess impacts, hazards and risks. Deploy and monitor plans that adapt to changing circumstances. 6.1 Address Risk & Opportunity
6.2 System Objectives & Planning
6.3 Planning for Change

Do - Support & Operations

This is the 'Do' part of the PDCA process. Ensure the availability of resources and information necessary to support the operation and monitoring of your processes. This may be through management review or other methods that define resource requirements.

Process Approach
DO - Support & Operations
ISO 9001:2015, ISO 14001:2015 & OHSAS 18001:2007
Step 4Do: Provide the resources required to meet your organization’s goals. Consider the need for internal and external communication, and the levels of competence and awareness required to acheive your objectives. Define and retain process related documented information to demonstrate conformity. 7.1 Resources
7.2 Competence
7.3 Awareness
7.4 Communication
7.5 Documented Information
Step 5Do: Implement the processes required to develop and achieve process, product or service conformity. Define in-house controls for managing outsourced processes. Define process criteria and implement monitoring controls. Implement controls to deal with non-confoorming process outputs, products and services. Ensure processes exist to respond to adverse environmental impacts and workplace incidents. 8.1 Operational Planning & Control
8.2 Requirements for Products & Services
8.3 Design & Development of Products & Services
8.4 Control of Externally Provided Products & Services
8.5 Product & Service Provision
8.6 Release of Products & Services
8.7 Non-conforming Outputs
8.8 Emergency Preparedness & Response
8.9 Accident & Incident Investigation

Check - Monitor, Measure & Analyse

This is the 'Check' part of the PDCA process. Monitor, measure and analyse process performance. All identified processes must be subject to the requirements of monitoring, measurement and analysis. The methods employed and the timing of such analysis should be based upon priorities established by the organization.

Process Approach
CHECK - Monitor, Measure & Analyse
ISO 9001:2015, ISO 14001:2015 & OHSAS 18001:2007
Step 6Check: Decide what processes should be monitored and measured to determine performance. Define how and data is analysed to ensure valid results. 9.1 Monitoring, Measurement, Analysis & Evaluation
9.2 Internal Audit
9.3 Management Review

Act - Implement Actions

This is the 'Act' part of the PDCA process. Implement actions necessary to achieve the planned results, and for the continual improvement of those processes. Auditors will expect to see evidence that corrective action is taken when measurable objectives fall below target or a defined action level.

Process Approach
ACT - Implement Actions
ISO 9001:2015, ISO 14001:2015 & OHSAS 18001:2007
Step 7Act: Use metrics such as rates of non-conformities, corrective actions and audit results to determine whether the management system is adequate and effective. Apply The PDCA cycle to introduce continual improvement at the system level, and at the process or sub-process level. 10.1 General
10.2 Non-Conformity & Corrective Action
10.3 Continual Improvement
