Analysis of ISO/FDIS 9001:2000, With Guidance References

This is the second part of an in-depth subclause-by-subclause analysis of the requirements as presently specified in ISO/FDIS 9001. Appropriate references are included to the guidance offered by ISO/FDIS 9004 on the same QMS elements and to the definitions contained and concepts explored in ISO/FDIS 9000 to help your organization better understand what requirements mean. The analysis serves as a summarization of ISO/FDIS 9001 to help you become acquainted with its requirements, and the references to ISO/FDIS 9004 and ISO/FDIS 9000 demonstrate the value these guidance standards offer. Sections 5-7.4 of ISO/FDIS 9001 are covered, with a table showing where the requirements appeared in ISO 9001:1994 and noting significant changes since the DIS.
