This standard defines the form and content of Terms of Refer-ence documents. These are used to clearly define the objec-tives and deliverables of a given task or function, along with the parameters and constraints within which these objectives are to be achieved. They ensure that the customer of the task or function, the organisation carrying out the work, and the in-dividual responsible for that work clearly understand the objec-tives, deliverables, parameters and constraints of the task or function.
A terms of reference can apply to a wide-ranging, multi-resourced study to be carried out, right down to describing in-dividual areas of responsibility. For example, terms of refer-ence may be produced for a steering committee, a project, a project manager, or a task of work. In some instances, terms of reference may even be used in lieu of a project plan and quality plan.
This standard defines the format and content of all Terms of Reference documents.
The outcome of using this standard will be the following.
• All QMS projects or work will have documents that clearly define the objectives and deliverables of a given task or function and the parameters and constraints within which these objectives are to be achieved.
• All Terms Of Reference documents shall be consistent in format and content.
