Quality management systems - Guidelines for quality management in projects (Adopted ISO 10006:2003, second edition, 2003-06-15)
This is the second edition of CAN/CSA-ISO 10006, Quality management systems — Guidelines for quality management in projects, which is an adoption without modification of the identically titled ISO (International Organization for Standardization) Standard 10006 (second edition, 2003-06-15). This Standard supersedes the previous edition published in 1998 (adopted ISO 10006:1997).
The ISO 9000 and 10000 family of Standards were developed by quality experts from around the world, under the auspices of ISO Technical Committee 176. Canada plays a major role in this area. The Secretariat of ISO/TC 176 is held by CSA on behalf of Canada’s member body in ISO, the Standards Council of Canada.
Canadian stakeholders participate actively in the administration and development of the ISO 9000 and 10000 family of International Standards through CSA’s national consensus development forum. The CSA Technical Committee on Quality Management is the source of Canadian experts and public input for the ISO 9000 and ISO 10000 Standards. In its capacity as the Canadian Advisory Committee to ISO/TC 176 (CAC/ISO/TC 176), the Technical Committee is responsible for:
(a) developing and submitting coordinated Canadian responses, comments, and voting actions on ISO/TC 176 documents;
(b) providing the Canadian delegates participating at international meetings of ISO/TC 176 and its Working groups; and
(c) recommending the Canadian position for delegates to take in international meetings.
This Standard was reviewed for Canadian adoption by the CSA Technical Committee on Quality Management (CAC/ISO/TC 176), under the jurisdiction of the Strategic Steering Committee on Business Management, and has been formally approved by the Technical Committee. A list of the members of the Technical Committee is available upon request. This Standard has been approved as a National Standard of Canada by the Standards Council of Canada.
This International Standard gives guidance on the application of quality management in projects. It is applicable to projects of varying complexity, small or large, of short or long duration, in different environments, and irrespective of the kind of product or process involved.
This can necessitate some tailoring of the guidance to suit a particular project.
This International Standard is not a guide to .project management. itself. Guidance on quality in project management processes is discussed in this International Standard. Guidance on quality in a project.s productrelated processes, and on the process approach, is covered in ISO 9004.
Since this International Standard is a guidance document, it is not intended to be used for certification/registration purposes. 3.2
