  • Ensure that all requirements have been met.
  • Confirm that employees receive applicable training in the quality system requirements.
  • Produce records or evidence that system requirements have been met.
  • Determine processes, their interaction, inputs and outputs.
  • Measure, monitor and report the performance of the QMS.
  • Perform internal audit to analyse the QMS and correct nonconformities.
  • Plan changes to the QMS and take actions to address risks and opportunities as a result of changes
  • Continually improve the QMS
