What does 'documented information' mean?

The terms ‘documented procedure’ and ‘record’ have both been replaced by the term ‘documented information’, and is defined as information required to be controlled and maintained by an organization, as well as the medium on which it is contained; documented information can be in any format and media and from any source.

From an internal audit perspective, key aspects of your management system are the processes, procedures, and forms. Audits often involve a systematic inspection and comparison of actual operating methods with the procedures and forms specified. It is, therefore, vital that procedures and forms are established in close consultation with the staff who perform the associated work.

What's the difference between a process and a procedure?

Think of a process as 'actions to get work done'. Usually, it's the work of interacting people, machines or other processes. Work applies to the resources and controls that change inputs into outputs. These days our work depends on effective interactions with other process teams, across several functions or departments, and with procedures and forms to control these process steps; value comes from using a set of standardized instructions.

A procedure describes the instructions for a specific task within a process. The content will vary depending on the size of the business, its activities, processes, products and services; the complexity and interactions of its processes, and the competence of personnel. A process may have one or several procedures, which may or may not be documented, to control the work. In some cases, procedures may be so well understood by the people doing the work to make the procedure unnecessary.

A form is a type of document used to collect and record quality management system data as required. A form becomes a 'record' when data are entered and saved. Operational procedures and forms, as well as; reports, work instructions, flow charts, process maps, signs, placards, drawings, schematics, container markings, labels, etc. are all valid examples of ‘documented information’.

ISO 9001 quality procedure and form specification

By developing the procedures and forms to align with the concepts, guidelines, and terminology given in ISO 9000:2015, ISO 9004:2018, ISO 10013:2001 and ISO 19011:2018, our range of procedures and forms deliver clear, concise and well-documented content that provides long-term value for money!
