Look at the Principles and Your Need for Documentation

Gordon Staples writes that he has a number of concerns about the implementation of ISO 9001:2000, two of which involve the eight Quality Management Principles and their role (or lack thereof) in ISO 9001:2000 and the documented procedures required by ISO 9001:2000. Staples points out that conforming to the eight principles is not mandatory with ISO 9001:2000, and he examines the eight principles and how well each is applied in ISO 9001:2000. He also discusses the documented procedures required by ISO 9001:2000 and how the use of documentation should be viewed to make a QMS effective.
