    Hi All,

    We are currently in the process of updating our QMS to conform with the new ISO 9001 standard.

    From talks with BSI auditors and having been on a transition course, it was gathered that we will now have to include our finance department into the scope of the QMS as this has now become more of a 'business management system'.

    I was wondering what clause in the standard would explicitly relate to a finance/accounting department? There is no longer a 'purchasing' clause in the standard and the only clause i can directly relate is 8.4 - control of externally provided services/products.

    Many thanks all,

    Finance for most companies is involved in the budget preparation process. Thus, supports the provision of resources needed by the organization for their QMS. Clause 7.1.1 is related to Finance. Also clauses 4.4.1d; 5.1.1e; 6.2.2b; 6.3c; 8.1c; 8.3.2e; 9.3.2d; and 9.3.3c.
