QUALITY POLICY AND QUALITY OBJECTIVES IN ISO 9001:2008
FOLLOW BY EMAIL Submit
K. R. Singhal QUALITY POLICY
Let us begin with the concept of quality policy in QMS. The quality policy of an organization shapes approach of the organization to its customers. A quality policy establishes: (i) a commitment to quality, (ii) a commitment to continual improvement of the quality management system, (iii) the context for quality objectives, and (iv) how the organization’s objectives relate to customers’ requirements. A quality policy of an organization must meet the following minimum criteria: (a) It should be linked to overall organizational goals, (b) It should be relevant to the needs and expectations of the customers of the organization. Accordingly, the quality policy of an organization must provide a framework for establishing and reviewing organization’s quality objectives.

Clause 4.2.1 of ISO 9001:2008 Standard requires organization to document quality policy statement. Clause 5.3 of ISO 9001:2008 Standard frames requirements with regard to quality policy, which include to ensure that quality policy is (i) appropriate to the purpose of the organization, (ii) includes a commitment to comply with requirements and continually
