For example, the topics of corrective action and preventive action are often combined into a single document. The important thing is to address those subjects in the clearest and most concise manner possible. Documents beyond the minimum requirements ISO requires that you have any documents necessary to maintain effective operation and control. The more documentation you have, the less likely your personnel are to understand it. In any case, the amount of documentation beyond the required documents is for the organization to decide.
This means that the organization must explain the rationale for excluding the requirement. All product designs are received directly from customers in the form of blueprints. ISO requires that the quality manual include the management system procedures or references to the proce- dures. Including all the procedures in their entirety would make for a very long and unwieldy quality manual.
This is a rarity, though. Keep in mind that the documented procedures that must be included or referenced in the quality manual are just the next level down in detail. Copyright Craig Cochran.

The truth is that they are quite general. The purpose of this is to explicitly commit to everything in the ISO standard, which is something that most registrars require.

The only universally applicable docu- Copyright Craig Cochran. These include printed e-mails, letters, memos, drawings, photographs, and even Post-it notes in some cases.
Documents must be controlled or removed. Otherwise, mistakes are guaranteed. Your procedure for document control must itself be documented. This straightforward book is ideal for people who are new to ISO , experienced ISO coordinators who want to get more out of an established system as they transition to the new standard, and for employees who just need a basic understanding of what ISO is and how it applies to them.
Cochran explains each of ISO 's sections and clauses using real-world examples and frequently asked questions.
Cleared my "fog" and confusion. By Maria K. Todd I really loved this book. It took me step by step and organized all the feathers in my brain from trying to read a bunch of other author's blogs, interpretations, etc. Things have changed and the practical applicability of version will be transformational. However, just like when someone starts working in the military world or the international development world, quality experts have their own lingo and ISO was written to that audience.
A newcomer feels like they were transported to a different planet with breathable air and no reference points or map. Cochran painstakingly took and "crosswalked it" where he could to Where there was no crosswalk or path, he just dissects it and explain it in "human people terms".
Reading it twice enabled me to figure out how to work with the new standards and implement it for my clients who are interested and never did , because without 4.
Thanks Craig. Well done! There are many changes between ISO and ISO and Craig does a great job explaining the changes in great detail using many helpful examples.
I have no hesitation about recommending this book
