ISO 9001:2008 requires that the Quality Management System is properly resourced as follows:
One member of Top Management must be responsible for determining what resources are required for the implementation and improvement of your quality management system.
Your organisation’s process for determining resource requirements should also be stated here. Most organisations determine resource requirements during management review meetings. It is sufficient for your quality manual to state: ‘the principal forum for determining and communicating resource requirements is during management reviews’.
Resource Management is documented and explained in our Quality Manual Template and guidance document.
