Hi all When identifying statutory and regulatory requirements applicable to our business , come to mind, what are those that we strictly have to comply with. Reading the standard, it focuses most to meet customer compliments which means laws and rules related to products and services. (see below) However I ´ve seen , that others ISO users or auditors, recommend to include other laws and regulations, that have to be in compliment, e.g. local accounting laws, state tax,etc. even if they are not related directly to products and services. I know that in order to have a business, it is needed to comply with such government requirements, but those laws are not related directly to products and services and should not be included into the QMS. Suppose if a company produces plastic tires, well, will have all the processes needed to comply with that product as well, statutory and regulatory rules, but I dont have to worry about to comply with accounting local rules included into QMS. Such accounting activities when managed in the wrong way, could affect product indirectly but not directly. Where in the standard is explained clearly this point? Note that in IAF (below) also is focused in products and services. Please share your opinions in this matter. Thanks From ISO 9001 2015 <<<<< 1 Scope This International Standard specifies requirements for a quality management system when an organization: a) needs to demonstrate its ability to consistently provide products and services that meet customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements, and b) aims to enhance customer satisfaction through the effective application of the system, including processes for improvement of the system and the assurance of conformity to customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements. <<<<< FROM IAF (auditing practices) ISO 9001 Auditing Practices Group Guidance on: Statutory and regulatory requirements ISO 9001 requires an organization to identify and control the statutory and regulatory requirements applicable to its products and services. It is up to the organization to determine what is required within its QMS. The organization should demonstrate that the statutory and regulatory requirements applicable to its products and services have been properly identified, are available and easily retrievable.
