The ISO Monitoring-Measurement Procedure establishes the methods your company uses to monitor and, where possible, measure the effectiveness of Quality Management System processes with ISO 9001:2015.
This procedure applies to all Quality Management System processes. (4 pages, 790 words)
Department Managers should identify process parameters to be monitored and/or measured to ensure effective, ongoing control of processes they manage. Additional process parameters shall be monitored and/or measured and recorded as specified in relevant written operating instructions.

The Quality Assurance Manager is responsible for the accuracy of all process monitoring and measuring devices.
ISO Monitoring-Measurement Definitions
Monitoring and Measuring Equipment – Devices used to collect data and measure, gauge, test, inspect, or otherwise examine items to determine their compliance with specifications.
Validation – Confirmation, by providing objective evidence, that requirements for a specific intended use or application have been fulfilled; assuring that equipment, processes, software, and/or systems operate as intended so products consistently meet specifications. Among the processes that typically require validation are: mechanical and electrical assembly, chemical/biological processing, and automated inspection, sterilization, packaging, and/or storage.
