How to Implement a QMS and Achieve ISO 9001 Certification

Part 17: Clauses 7.2 and 7.3 - Competence and Awareness

In this blog I’m combining the competence and awareness clauses.  I firmly believe that someone can only be deemed competent if they have an awareness of the quality management system.  No awareness?  Then sorry, no competency.  In my book, competence and awareness always go hand-in-hand.

Let’s start with competence.  The standard breaks competence down into 3 stages:

  1. First, determine the competence that someone needs to have to be able to control the work they do that will have an effect on the performance of the quality management system (QMS).
  2. Second, ensure that the people who are controlling the job are competent based on their education, training and experience.
  3. Finally, if there are gaps between stages 1 and 2, create an action plan to address those gaps.

What is the Integrated Management Standard MSS 1000?

An Integrated Management System Standard has been created by Industry Experts

In this webinar I talk to Ian Dalling from the Chartered Quality Institute about a new Integrated Management System Standard MSS 1000:2014.

This standard was developed by industry experts.  It is a universal management system standard enabling organisations to create fully integrated management systems directing and guiding their total strategic, tactical and operational management processes. It avoids the need to comply with multiple management system standards covering separate aspects of performance such as goods and services quality, health and safety, environment and security.

How to Implement a QMS and Achieve ISO 9001 Certification

Part 16 - Clause 7.1 Resources

In the 2008 version of ISO 9001, the clause relating to resources was a paltry 31 words long.  Titled “Provision of Resources”, it only required that an organisation provide resources to maintain and improve its QMS and enhance customer satisfaction.  That’s it.  Now that’s really broad.  You could drive a bus through that.  So as a customer and as an internal auditor this clause was something that I took for granted for years.  I took it for granted because resources are just resources, aren’t they?  It’s really hard for the auditor to prove that more resources are needed.  They need to have a sound case to prove that.
