PD ISO/TS 9002:2016 Quality management systems — Guidelines for the application of ISO 9001:2015 has recently been published

This document has been developed to assist users to apply the quality management system requirements of ISO 9001:2015, and provides guidance, with a clause by clause correlation to Clauses 4 to 10 of ISO 9001:2015, (although it does not provide guidance on Annexes A and B). It gives examples of what an organization can do, but it does not add new requirements to ISO 9001.

The examples in this document are not definitive and only represent possibilities, not all of which are necessarily suitable for every organization, and include descriptions and options that aid both in the implementation of a quality management system and in strengthening its relation to the overall management system of an organization.

While the guidelines in this document are consistent with the ISO 9001 quality management system model, they are not intended to provide interpretations of the requirements of ISO 9001 or be used for audit or evaluation purposes.
