Top Ten Things You Need to Know About Implementing ISO 9001:2015 Compliant Risk Based Thinking

Presented in conjunction with Quality Digest, this webinar explains how to implement risk-based thinking in an ISO 9001:2015-compliant quality mangement system.

The concept of risk-based thinking has been implicit in previous editions of ISO 9001 through requirements planning, review, and improvement. But ISO 9001:2015 explicitly requires companies to use risk-based thinking to manage their business.

In order to comply with the standard, there are 10 things you need to know:

  • What is risk?
  • How is risk reduced?
  • Where are the sources of risk in a company?
  • What processes does ISO 9001:2015 require risk-based thinking to be used on?
  • What is the relationship between risk-based thinking and plan-do-check-act?
  • What are the key steps in managing process risk within the QMS system?
  • How does a company prioritize which QMS process risks to work on?
  • What types of risk management tools does the standard require companies to use?
  • What elements of the risk management system must be documented?
  • Should a company implement a risk management system more robust than the system described in the standard?
