Designed to accompany your ISO 9001 Quality Management Manual, the Document Review service ensures your company's procedures comply with ISO requirements.
One of our experienced auditors will review all changes to your customized Quality Management Manual and produce a detailed report showing how your documentation meets ISO requirements, as well as identifying gaps, risks, and opportunities for improvement.
Customizing and adapting the ISO 9001 Quality Management Manual to your company's circumstances may substantially change the ISO 9001 procedures. Our Document Review service is designed to scrutinize your company's customized Quality Management Manual, examine all changes, and assess the extent to which they meet the stringent ISO 9001 requirements.

The Document Review service is designed to work with your ISO 9001 Quality Management Manual (QMM). You need to buy the QMM separately and then customize it according to your company's specific circumstances before you using the Document Review service.

When is the best time to use the Document Review service?
The best time to have our auditors review your documentation is as soon as you've finished customizing your ISO 9001 Quality Management Manual.
Ideally, have it reviewed by us prior to implementing it in your company's work processes. This way you can more easily adopt our recommendations and best practices in daily operations.
Is the Document Review necessary to pass the certification audit?
The answer really depends on how well you customized the ISO 9001 Quality Management Manual. Most of our clients are able to customize the template so that it remains compliant with the standard. For them, the Document Review service is not necessary.
However, since the Document Review service not only focuses on compliance but also on improvement suggestions and risk reduction, there is still a great deal of value to be gained from this service even if you did a great job customizing the template.
Why do you only review documentation based on your ISO 9001 Quality Management Manual?
We've seen a lot of ISO 9001 documentation over the years; some prepared from scratch, some based on templates or written by consultants. Quality varied widely, but far too much was "beyond help".
The Document Review service goes beyond pointing out areas that don't comply with ISO 9001 requirements. Our auditor will also identify risks and opportunities for improvement.
Offering this service at a reasonable price wouldn't be possible if your company's ISO documentation wasn't built on a solid foundation. Our ISO 9001 Quality Management Manual, together with the included customization instructions, ensures this foundation. The manual almost always results in robust documentation that makes this optional review service both viable and affordable.
