How does BSI:ISO 9001:2015 work?

BSI:ISO 9001:2015 follows the PDCA (Plan, Do, Check, Act) method used in design for continuous improvement. In PDCA the idea is that in the plan phase, you establish your objectives and the processes need to complete them. Next up is the do phase, where the processes from Plan are implemented with the next step being Check which is where the effectiveness of the processes is assessed on how well they met your objectives. The final step is Act, sometimes called Adjust, where any short comings identified in Check are addressed and processes are adjusted.

PDCA remains at the heart of ISO: 9001 with companies having to show a commitment to continual improvement in the context of their organisation in order to become certified. In order to do this the business is audited and presented with a list of nonconformities (problems) which the company then has to present an improvement plan to show how they're going to address the nonconformities and will display how they intend to correct their nonconformities.
