Outsourced Process - definition(s)

Outsourced Process - An outsourced process is any process that is part of your organization's quality management system (QMS) but is performed by a party that is external to your organization.

According to ISO 9001, you must identify and control your outsourced processes, and you must ensure that each outsourced process is effective. You also need to figure out how to control the interaction between internal and outsourced processes.

A process is a set of activities that are interrelated or that interact with one another. Processes use resources to transform inputs into outputs.

According to ISO/TC 176/SC 2/N526R, "the terms subcontract and outsource are interchangeable and have the same meaning.
