How do I document the Resources requirement (7.1) of the ISO9001 Standard?

The 2015 version of the ISO9001 standard requires a specific level of review and understanding.

As stated: “The organization shall determine and provide the resources needed for the establishment, implementation, maintenance and continual improvement of the quality management system.”

As part of the Management Review conducted at least annually you can set up a simple table that is completed by the owner of each specific resource requirement. This could be Human Resources in the case of people and Operations for equipment or software.

The table should be set up as below:

RESOURCEREQUIREMENT(S)OWNER(S)STATUS
People   
Buildings   
Equipment   
Software   
Transportation   
Environmental   
IT/Communication   
Environmental   
Measurement Equipment   

This table forces the organization to consider all resources necessary to allow full compliance with the standard. If a requirement is not applicable it can be marked as such.
