CASE STUDIES.

1:         Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Battery Explosions (2016)

Issue:   Samsung had to recall its Galaxy Note 7 smartphones after several units caught fire due to battery defects.

ISO 9001 Relevance:

Clause 8.3 (Design and Development of Products and Services): Emphasizes thorough testing and validation of product designs.

Clause 8.5.6 (Control of Changes): Ensures that changes in the design and development process are controlled and reviewed.

Prevention:

Comprehensive risk assessment and testing protocols mandated by ISO 9001 could have identified the battery design flaws before the product was launched.

 

2:         BP Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill (2010)
