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This guidance has been superseded by ISO 9001:2015 Clause 8.5.3 Property Belonging to Customers or External Providers. 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ISO 9001:2008: Customer property 7.5.4 (superseded)
If there are any products, materials, or tools on the organization's premises that are owned by a customer, all employees must exercise care with this property. This means they must ensure that the product is not lost or damaged.
If it is lost or damaged, this needs to be recorded and the customer needs to be notified. Establish and implement a process to manage property supplied by customers:
- Establish the identity and status of customer supplied product
- Maintaining records
The auditor will expect to see that the organization has clearly identified any and all customer property. The auditor will verify that the organization has established a process to protect customer property.
Further a process must be established for contacting the customer when these items are lost, damaged or otherwise found unsuitable for the process.
