This is the second edition of CAN/CSA-ISO 10005, Quality management systems - Guidelines for quality plans, which is an adoption without modification of the identically titled ISO (International Organization for Standardization) Standard 10005 (second edition, 2005-06-01).
It supersedes the previous edition, published in 1996 as CAN/CSA-ISO 10005 (adopted ISO 10005:1995).
This International Standard provides guidelines for the development, review, acceptance, application and revision of quality plans.
It is applicable whether or not the organization has a management system in conformity with ISO 9001.
This International Standard is applicable to quality plans for a process, product, project or contract, any product category (hardware, software, processed materials and services) and any industry. It is focused primarily on product realization and is not a guide to organizational quality management system planning.
This International Standard is a guidance document and is not intended to be used for certification or registration purposes.
NOTE To avoid undue repetition of process, product, project or contract, this International Standard uses the term specific case (see 3.10).
