Design and development
The ISO Navigator™ database hyperlinks the ISO 9000:2005 principles and the ISO 9001:2008 requirements; and explains them in plain English with practical guidance.
This guidance has been superseded by ISO 9001:2015 Clause 8.3.3 Design and Development Inputs. If you want to see a comparison matrix that correlates the requirements of ISO 9001:2008 to the revised requirements of ISO 9001:2015, please click here to begin comparing.
Our range of ISO 9001:2015 quality manuals and integrated manual templates cover the requirements of ISO 14001:2015 and ISO 45001:2018, and offer an easy way to implement and document your organization's quality management system or integrated management system.
ISO 9001:2008: Design and development input 7.3.2 (superseded)
Define which inputs are required to carry out the design and development process. The customer requirement inputs should be determined according to the design and development activities. For example which employees are required or what information is required for every step of the development. Determine design and development inputs by determining:
- Functional and performance characteristics
- Statutory and regulatory requirements
- Relevant information from previous designs
- Requirements essential to the product
- The types of records that are required
An auditor might want to review evidence that the inputs (7.3.2) have been addressed based on the nature of the product being produced, that they have been reviewed for adequacy and that records are maintained of the activity.
An organization may include design personnel in the contract review stage; these records may suffice the review of design input requirements.
