Application Note: ISO 9001:2015 and Weighing - Managing Risk and Quality
12 March 2018

This whitepaper explains the changes in the revised standard of ISO 9001:2015 and describes the timeline associated with transition to the new version. It addresses the effect of these changes on weighing devices and weighing processes, as weight measurements are a critical process step which can significantly affect quality. Provides guidance and recommendations on how to consider weighing devices in order to meet the process requirements and risk-based thinking approach outlined in the revised version of ISO 9001, and the firmly established Good Weighing Practice™ strategy is presented, which fully supports the risk-based process approach and explain how this already complies with ISO 9001:2015 and can be easily implemented into a quality management system.
