ISO 9001
Implementation
Checklist
Many companies wonder where to begin when implementing ISO 9001
registration. This checklist can help you start down the right path.
BUY THE STANDARD
You will need a copy of ISO 9001. Please visit http://infostore.saiglobal.com/ or contact our Publishing division at
(888) 454-2688 or by email at [email protected]
RESEARCH
Gaining an understanding of how other organizations have implemented and benefited from ISO 9001 is necessary to
support and motivate your decision to register.
DECISION TIME
Top Management must be committed in their support of your implementation of ISO 9001 within the organization.
PERFORM A GAP ASSESSMENT
You must know the status of your current quality systems versus ISO 9001 requirements in order to plan and
accomplish the implementation of a quality management system (QMS) in the most efficient manner possible.
QMS TRAINING
You may decide that self-studying the standard is not enough. Consider one of the ISO 9001 courses available at at
http://www.saiglobal.com/Training/assurance/iso-9001/.
CONSULTANT
You may also decide to bring in a business management consultant to help with your implementation. Your local SAI
Global office may be able to provide a selection of qualified individuals.
QMS STRATEGY
Before planning and implementing your QMS, decide on its structure: will it cover one or multiple sites? Will it be
managed centrally or independently. Will it integrate with other existing management systems?
SYSTEM DEVELOPMENT AND IMPLEMENTATION PLANNING
Create the plan to ensure you put controls in place to meet all the requirements of the standard, such as training,
procedures and work instructions, maintenance, communications, audits and management reviews.
SELECT A REGISTRAR
Apply to your registrar and complete the proper documentation; a quote will then be provided to you.
IMPLEMENTATION
Complete the development of policies and procedures, launch an awareness campaign and begin implementation of
new practices. Talk to your SAI Global auditor!
CONDUCT THE FIRST FULL CYCLE OF INTERNAL AUDITS AND MANAGEMENT REVIEW
An internal audit and management review are part of your QMS and are needed in order to demonstrate full
implementation of your QMS. Note that you will need to audit them separately after they have been held.

DOCUMENT REVIEW AND PRELIMINARY ASSESSMENT
We will review your documented procedures to assess implementation progression. You will receive a report
identifying areas of improvement and schedule a registration audit date.
REVIEW SAI GLOBAL FINDINGS
Adjust your QMS based on the findings from the document review and preliminary assessment.
COMPLETE THE IMPLEMENTATION OF YOUR QMS
Aim to have your QMS fully implemented for a minimum of 6 months for sufficient auditor assessment.
CONDUCT SECOND FULL CYCLE OF INTERNAL AUDITS AND MANAGEMENT REVIEW
A second round of internal audits will confirm that your QMS is fully implemented and functioning to meet customer
expectations. These audits will also confirm readiness for the registration assessment. Corrective actions resulting from
previously-identified nonconformities should be verified as corrected and closed.
REGISTRATION AUDIT
All the requirements of ISO 9001 will be covered. In addition, SAI Global will provide an audit plan to guide you
through the opening meeting, site tour, interviews, observations, records review, debriefings and closing meetings; we
will also issue a final report.
ISO 9001 CERTIFICATE
SAI Global will conduct an internal independent review of your registration and issue your certificate after audit
nonconformances, if any, have been resolved.
CELEBRATION
You’ve earned your registration! Celebrate and promote your success.
MAINTAIN AND IMPROVE YOUR QMS
Maintain the practices defined by your QMS and look for improvement opportunities.
SURVEILLANCE AUDITS
These audits are similar to the registration audit, but shorter in duration. You can choose an annual schedule, where
SAI Global will visit your facility once a year and audit about half of your QMS. You can also choose a semi-annual
schedule, where we will visit every 6 months and review about one-quarter of your system.
RE-REGISTRATION AUDIT
Similar to registration and surveillance audits, this focuses on how well you are maintaining your entire QMS.
A NEW ISO 9001 CERTIFICATE
SAI Global will conduct an internal independent review of your re-registration and issue your certificate after audit
nonconformances, if any, have been resolved.
