10.2: Nonconformity and corrective action requires the organisation to take corrective actions to address nonconformities identified in its quality management system, and to evaluate the effectiveness of those corrective actions.

10.3: Continual improvement requires the organisation to continually improve the effectiveness of its quality management system through the use of tools such as internal audits, management reviews, and data analysis. The organization should identify opportunities for improvement and implement appropriate actions to address them.
