The 2015 edition of ISO 9001 has been modernized to update terminology and content to meet current and anticipated user needs. The major emphasis of ISO 9001:2015 is still consistent provision of products and services that meet customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements. This book explains the meaning and intent of the requirements of ISO 9001:2015 and discusses the requirements as they relate to each of the product categories. Where appropriate, it includes an elaboration of why the requirements are important. It also includes typical audit-type questions that an organization may consider to assess conformity to internal needs and ISO 9001 requirements. Recommendations for implementation are also included. This book addresses the needs of: Users and organizations seeking a general understanding of the contents of ISO 9001:2015 Users and organizations desiring guidance to ensure their ISO 9001:2015 QMS meets the new version requirements Users and organizations considering the use of ISO 9001:2015 as a foundation for the development of a comprehensive QMS Educators who require a textbook to accompany a training class or course on ISO 9001:2015 Auditors who desire to increase their level of auditing competence Authors Cianfrani and West, members of the expert group that developed ISO 9001:2015, strive to provide a context for all requirements to enable you to develop and deploy processes that will strengthen your QMS. Getting or retaining a certificate is not the real objective. Satisfied customers and organizational sustainability should be primary objectives for the organization.

Law 101

Author: Jay Feinman
Publisher: Oxford University Press
ISBN: 9780199341702
Release Date: 2014-08-01
Genre: Law

In each of the first three editions of the bestselling Law 101, Jay Feinman gave readers an upbeat and vivid examination of the American legal system. Since the third edition was published in 2010, much has happened: several key Supreme Court cases have been decided, we've seen sensational criminal trials, and the legal system has had to account for the latest developments in Internet law. This fully updated fourth edition of Law 101 accounts for all this and more, as Feinman once again provides a clear introduction to American law. The book covers all the main subjects taught in the first year of law school, and discusses every facet of the American legal tradition, including constitutional law, the litigation process, and criminal, property, and contracts law. To accomplish this, Feinman brings in the most noteworthy, infamous, and often outrageous examples and cases. We learn about the case involving scalding coffee that cost McDonald's half a million dollars, the murder trial in Victorian London that gave us the legal definition of insanity, and the epochal decision of Marbury vs. Madison that gave the Supreme Court the power to declare state and federal law unconstitutional. A key to learning about the law is learning legal vocabulary, and Feinman helps by clarifying terms like "due process" and "equal protection," as well as by drawing distinctions between terms like "murder" and "manslaughter." Above all, though, is that Feinman reveals to readers of all kinds that despite its complexities and quirks, the law is can be understood by everyone. Perfect for students contemplating law school, journalists covering legislature, or even casual fans of "court-television" shows, Law 101 is a clear and accessible introduction to the American legal system. New to this edition: Featured analysis of: -the Obamacare case -Citizens United -the DOMA decision -the Trayvon Martin case As well as recent legal developments pertaining to: -online contracting -mortgages -police investigations -criminal sentencing
