ISO 9001:2015 Quality Manual

The ISO 9001:2015 Quality Manual  establishes and states the policies governing the company’s Quality Management System, or QMS.  These policies define management’s arrangements for managing operations and activities in accordance with ISO 9001.  These top-level policies represent the plans or protocols for achieving quality improvement and customer satisfaction.  

Note: the basic requirements of ISO 9001:2015 no longer require a Quality Manual. 

This sample quality manual covers the requirements of ISO 9001:2015 . It is intended only to provide an example of wording that might be used in a quality manual. This sample wording can be helpful in generating ideas for developing a manual for your own company.  However, quality policies should be drafted as appropriate and as necessary to accurately reflect your company’s unique situation and requirements, ensuring a quality management system appropriate for your organization. While, for clarity, this manual mirrors the section (clause, subclause, etc.) numbering in the ISO 9001:2015 Standard, it is not necessary for your quality manual to do the same.  A numbering scheme that is most useful to you should be used.

Use these sample Quality Manuals to generate discussion and ideas, so that your Quality Manual, including the referenced quality procedures, reflects your Company’s unique values and circumstances. It is not necessary for you to follow, item for item, the layout of this ISO 9001:2015 Quality Manual.  Rather, use this Quality Manual as a guide – shape it to suit your particular requirements, as well as those of your customers (of course).
