David Hoyle’s latest work on this ISO 9000 handbook once again cracks the code, encrypted by the ISO TC 176 authors and offers, actionable, pragmatic advice for users and quality practitioners around the world on how to understand and effect the ISO 9000 family of documents. With so many competing publications on the subject, this 7th edition should be the essential, go-

A valuable resource that explores salient concepts arising from the ISO 9001:2015 standard in an unambiguous manner.

Paul Harding, Managing Director, South African Quality Institute, South Africa. David Hoyle pulls no punches in this very comprehensive seventh edition of his ISO 9000 Handbook. Whether you are a scholar, business executive, quality manager, consultant or a Certification Body, this book is for you. He goes out of his way to change the misconception of what the ISO 9001:2015 standard is really all about. He meticulously explains that it is aimed at improved performance and not just a set of requirements for compliance. David convinces the reader that Quality should be managed as an integral part of every business.

Yet again David Hoyle has produced another excellent book that explains the new standard and its requirements in straightforward terms. It is the book we have all been waiting for that will help us implement the new Standard and will become the new bible for quality management Systems. If you follow the advice in Hoyle’s book you will not have any issues when the auditor arrives at your door. It is suitable for all people involved in the standard from company directors who need to know more about their responsibilities to experienced and busy Quality Managers who need to implement and inform others about the changes.
Richard Allan, Director, Quality Assurance, Kimberly-
The book does a great job of showing how a quality system built to the principles of ISO 9000 and conforming to the new ISO 9001:2015 requirements can be an integral part of leadership’s strategic approach to running the business versus letting a quality management system operate in a silo.
The book explores and explains the ISO 9001:2015 requirements in a way that is easy to follow yet at the same time deep and meaningful especially for those new concepts and requirements such as leadership, context of the organization and managing risk. This feels like a book I’ll keep referring to for many years to come.
