Is your Quality, Health & Safety or Environmental Compliance system working for you? How much time are you wasting trying to chase people to get things done, trying to remember to follow up on tasks, getting your Audits up to date, controlling documentation, dealing with customer complaints and capturing your Health & Safety Risks or incidents?
Let MANGO help you with a simpler way that makes the system not only work for you but, gets everyone involved in the system simply so you never have to remember again.
I absolutely love MANGO. The software is easy to use and has taken hours off my workload.

ISO9001:2015 Clause 4.3 is all about the scope of your Quality Management System, of what parts of your organisation will be included within your Quality Management System, in other words what are the boundaries of the Quality System. By completing ISO9001:2015 Clauses 4.1(Context of the Organisation) , Clause 4.2(Interested parties) and Clause 4.4 (Quality Management System Processes) in advance of looking at the scope you should now be in a place to let you outline the Quality Management System Scope effectively.
You have the ability to effectively ring fence the parts of your organisation that will be in or out of the Quality Management System, ISO9001:2015 Clause 4.3 is where you do this.
Here are some examples of the considerations you should make about the scope
Since you have been through Clauses 4.1, 4.2 & 4.4 you will have documented all the thinking that will go into your Scope section, this is an important requirement as it lets you explain the Scope you have selected to anyone within the organisation, clients and of course the all important ISO9001:2015 auditor
The actual description of the scope doesn't have to be that long, in fact the shorter the better because it should be clearer, don't inject a whole bunch of flowery adjectives and clever talk just nice simple plain english. Some Examples of an ISO9001:2015 Scope are:
If you are a regular reader of the site you will know that I hate the polishing or wordsmithing of documentation, there is just no need for it. It's the same here with your scope, make your best attempt at it and then accept it. As part of your continuous improvement cycle built into your new ISO9001:2015 system you will review the scope anyway so by all means tweak it as you go when review time comes round, but don't hold up the implementation trying to decide if that is the very best adjective to describe what you do, keep it simple!
