Defining the scope of your management system is a key step when developing any management system. The scope should concisely describe the activities, regulatory requirements, facilities, and remote locations that are to be covered under, and supported by quality management system. From a review of the nature of your business's operations, products and services, the scope of the management system should be apparent by the extent of the processes and controls that your organization has already established. Ensure the management system scope is relevant to external and internal issues, the requirements of relevant interested parties and the nature of your organization's products and services. Consideration of the boundaries and applicability of the management system can include:
The range of products and services;
Different sites and activities;
External provision of processes, products and services;
Common support provided by centralised functions;
Processes, procedures, instructions, or site-specific requirements. I-Scope function is to maintain and document the scope of management system and I-Scope module is in line with the requirement number 4.3 Determining the scope of Management System.
