Why you need to evaluate the performance and the effectiveness of the ISO Management System (MS)

Clause 9.1 Monitoring, measurement, analysis and evaluation of the ISO Management standard requires you to determine what needs to be monitored and measured for the management system, including the methods, frequency, and evaluation needed to ensure valid results.

ISO requires you to monitor customers’ perceptions of the degree to which their needs and expectations have been fulfilled. Examples of monitoring customer perceptions can include:

  • Customer surveys.
  • Customer feedback on delivered products and services.
  • Meetings with customers.
  • Market-share analysis.
  • Compliments.
  • Warranty claims and dealer reports.
