ISO/TS 9002

ISO/TS 9002, Guidelines for the application of ISO 9001:2015 was produced to assist users in the implementation of a quality management system based on ISO 9001:2015, Quality management systems - Requirements

This Technical Specification (TS) is intended to be informative and provides guidance on the requirements in ISO 9001, with a clause by clause correlation to Clauses 4-10. It does not provide guidance on the informative annexes A and B in ISO 9001.

This TS does not add new requirements to ISO 9001; however, it  gives examples of what an organization can do. These examples are not definitive and only represent possibilities, not all of which are necessarily suitable for every organization.

ISO 9001 contains requirements that can be objectively audited or assessed.  This TS includes examples, descriptions and options that aid both in the implementation of a quality management system and in strengthening its relation to the overall management of an organization. While the guidelines in this Technical Specification are consistent with the ISO 9001 quality management system model, they are not intended to provide interpretations of the requirements in ISO 9001 or be used for  audit or assessment purposes.

This TS is able to be used by organizations of all types, sizes, levels of maturity and in all sectors and geographic locations.
