Foreword
IS0 (the International Organization for Standardization) is a worldwide
federation of national standards bodies (IS0 member bodies). The work
of preparing International Standards is normally carried out through IS0
technical committees. Each member body interested in a subject for
which a technical committee has been established has the right to be
represented on that committee. International organizations, governmental
and non-governmental, in liaison with ISO, also take part in the work. IS0
collaborates closely with the International Electrotechnical Commission
(IEC) on all matters of electrotechnical standardization.
Draft International Standards adopted by the technical committees are
circulated to the member bodies for voting. Publication as an International
Standard requires approval by at least 75 % of the member bodies casting
a vote.
International Standard IS0 10007 was prepared by Technical Committee
lSO/TC 176, Quality management and quality assurance, Subcommittee
SC 2, Quality systems.
Annex A forms an integral part of this International Standard. Annexes B,
C and D are for information only.

Introduction
This International Standard provides guidelines for configuration manage-
ment. This is a management discipline that is applied over the life cycle
of a product to provide visibility and control of its functional and physical
characteristics. The activities described are a way of satisfying certain re-
quirements found in other International Standards in the IS0 9000 family.
A further goal of the guidelines is to enhance common understanding of
the subject, to encourage organizations applying configuration manage-
ment to improve their performance, to align the approach throughout in-
dustry and to improve national and international cooperation.
