- Understanding of the needs and expectations of interested parties
- Determining the scope of the quality management system
- Evaluating the quality management system and its core processes
- Evaluating leadership and commitment
- Confirming and evaluating existing of a quality policy
- Review of organizational roles, responsibilities and authorities
- Identification of actions that address risks and opportunities
- Evaluation of support and resources
- Evaluation of competence, awareness and communication
- Evaluation of documentation, including creation, updating and control
- Evaluation of the design and development inputs, controls and outputs
- Evaluation of the control of nonconforming outputs
