Product and service provision
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This guidance has been superseded by ISO 9001:2015 Clause 8.5.2 Identification and Traceability. 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ISO 9001:2008: Identification and traceability 7.5.3 (superseded)
There are several ways of identifying products. The most obvious is using tags or stickers with part numbers, bar codes, job numbers, etc. The identification may be engraved in the product itself, or the product may simply be marked by a colour.
Establish and implement a procedure to identify the product through the design, development, manufacture and delivery stages:
- Establish the identity and status of products
- Maintain the identity and status of products
- Maintain records of serial or batch numbers
The auditor will expect to see that product is identified (as appropriate) and its status with regards to monitoring and measuring (conforming or not) is identified throughout the product realization processes.
Where traceability is a requirement, the auditor will expect to see that the organization is controlling and recording the unique identification of the product.
