                               CSL Management System Policy Manual


This quality process manual describes CSL's quality management system, the
processes involved in the operation of our quality management system, the
interaction of these processes within the system, and our established policies as
they relate to TS16949:2002 Quality management systems - Requirements
It is important to understand how our critical (core) processes interact with each
other because a change in one process may have an impact on another process. This
quality management system is focused on process management. We have identified
our critical (core) and support processes and determined how to monitor and
measure these processes. Using data from these measurements, we make informed
decisions on correcting and preventing non-conformances as well as for making
continual improvements related to these processes.

Due to the nature of our business, this quality process manual addresses our entire
quality management system and the majority of applicable requirements of the
TS16949:2002 Quality management systems - Requirements. Those requirements
not addressed in this manual are covered in related supporting procedures. CSL is
not design responsible for the product.

Documentation Structure of the Quality Management System
The quality management system is documented in the following manner: -
 The quality management system manual is considered a top-level (Level I)

  document of CSL quality management system. It defines our quality policy and
  objectives; top management's commitment to quality and it identifies our critical
  processes and the resulting process owner. The quality management system
  manual is revised periodically to keep it up to date with our processes as they are
  continually improved. All revisions to this manual are recorded in our electronic
  document control system (EDMS). Obsolete or superseded printed, controlled
  copies of this document are retrieved and destroyed. Current copies of the
  manual are available through our EDMS.
 A cross-referencing system identifies the procedures that are linked to the

  related core processes identified in this manual. These procedures are necessary
  for the proper implementation of these processes.
 Quality procedures, a lower level document (Level II) defines the primary

  responsibilities within each of the documented processes. They execute the
  policies established in this manual and link this document to the process
  documents. These procedures are assigned the general prefix CSP and a
  reference number. In many cases, a CSP satisfies requirements of several
  elements of the International Standard.
 Some processes may require the execution of specific tasks. When this is

  required, on a routine basis then this activity is documented in the form of an

                               CSL Management System Policy Manual

    instruction, a level III document used to support a level II procedure. An
    instruction may take the form of a text document, a picture, a shop router
    (traveller), a flowchart or other means of consistently communicating the
    necessary information in order to perform the task. The process owners are
    responsible for creating, co-ordinating, maintaining and improving the
    instructions. The amount of detail contained in the instruction may vary
    depending on the complexity of the task being performed, the training the
    individual has received and/or the education and experience level of the
    individual performing the task.
   Another type of quality system document is a record, which states results
    achieved or provides evidence of activities being performed. Generally speaking,
    records need not be under revision control. The document control administrator
    maintains most records while the department managers maintain records relevant
    to their activities. Access to records is restricted to prevent loss and/or
   The documents that define our quality system are controlled by an electronic
    document system. This system is designed to deliver only the current version of
    all quality system documents to those individuals who have a need for those
    documents and are established as a "user" in the system. Access to view
    documents is controlled on document-by-document basis and is provided as
    needed. Access to edit documents is even more limited and only specifically
    assigned individuals are given this level of access.
   The management representative has the authority to revise quality system
    documents requiring administrative changes. These changes do not need to be
    routed for review but does require approval by the designated final approval
    authority of the document.

The approach used to develop, implement and maintain our quality management
system consists of the following steps:-
 We determined the needs and expectations of our customers and other

   interested parties. An interested party is defined as a person or group having an
   interest in the performance or success of our organisation. Interested parties
   include our customers, the owner and investors, our suppliers, our community, and
   our employees.

Release Date: - 22/07/2011   Date Printed: - 22/07/2011 16:07:00     Page 6 of 16
                               CSL Management System Policy Manual

   We established a quality policy and objectives for our organisation. A quality
    policy is a statement from top management that provides the overall intentions
    and direction of our organisation as it relates to quality and sets the framework
    for our quality objectives. A quality objective is something that is sought or
    aimed for that relates to the quality of our organisation and to the quality of our
    products and services. Each level in our organisation has established quality
    objectives that are relevant to their functions and to our quality policy.
   We determined our processes and responsibilities necessary to achieve our
    quality objectives. These processes have documented procedures that define
    who the "process owner" is and related responsibilities within the process.
    Occasionally, some of our processes require a set of detailed instructions that
    define how specific activity is to be accomplished. The process owner is
    responsible for ensuring these instructions are properly documented, co-
    ordinated, and maintained.
   Each functional area is responsible for identifying the resources necessary to
    accomplish the specific quality objectives. Top management reviews the resource
    requirements for final approval. Where resources requirements are not
    approved, top management documents the reason for disapproval and the impact
    on the process and on the quality management system.
   Each process owner is responsible for establishing methods to measure the
    effectiveness and efficiency of their processes and any related sub-processes.
    The results of these measurements are subject for review by top management
    during the management review process.
   Each process owner is responsible for using these process measurements as a
    means of preventing nonconformity and eliminating their causes and for
    identifying root causes for existing non-conformities and implementing
    corrective actions.
   Process owners are responsible for establishing and implementing our
    organisational approach to continual improvement. Through our continual
    improvement process, our organisation can determine non-value added steps in a
    process, improve existing processes, or determine the most efficient steps to
    achieve a desired outcome. Continual improvement is defined as recurring activity
    to increase our ability to fulfil requirements more efficiently.

Role of Top Management
Through the leadership of top management and more importantly, through our
actions, we create an environment where employees are fully involved in our quality
management system. The role of top management as it relates to our quality
management system is defined as follows:-
 To establish and maintain the quality policy and quality objectives of our
   organisation. The actions of top management create and maintain an environment
   in which we can live by our quality policy and achieve our organisation’s

Release Date: - 22/07/2011   Date Printed: - 22/07/2011 16:07:00     Page 7 of 16
                               CSL Management System Policy Manual

 Each department manager is responsible for understanding the quality policy,
  communicating it to employees in the department and to define how the quality
  policy is applicable within the department.
 To ensure employees understand our customer requirements. Knowing our
  customer requirements helps our employees understand their role and how they
  add value to the products and services we provide to our customers.
 To ensure our processes are implemented, managed and improved, which will
  enable us to meet our customer requirements and our quality and financial
 To ensure the availability of necessary resources to enable us to meet our
  objectives. Necessary resources are defined as people, equipment, and space.
 To ensure employees are adequately trained to perform their functions and are
  involved in continual improvement of those functions.
 To have regularly scheduled reviews of the status of our quality management
  system. These reviews include, at a minimum, the results of our internal audits,
  customer feedback, process and product conformity, recommendations for
  improvements, corrective and preventive actions and status of personnel training.

Continual Improvement
Continual improvement is defined as recurring activity that is used to increase our
ability to meet our customer requirements and our corporate objectives. There are
two fundamental ways to conduct continual process improvement: -
A. Breakthrough projects which either lead to a major revision or an existing
   process leading to a significant cost savings. This is usually accomplished through
   the efforts of a cross-functional team outside of routine day-to-day operations.
B. Small-step ongoing improvement activities conducted within existing processes
   by people involved in those processes. These improvements are usually based on
   the analysis of data provided by the specific process measurements.

The basic actions for continual improvement, whether small-step or breakthrough,
include the following seven-step approach: -

1) Analysing and evaluating the existing process/situation to identify areas for
   improvement, such as reviewing process data, interviewing people performing the
   process and benchmarking activities.
2) Establish the objectives for the improvement. Determine if the improvement
   provides an associated cost saving, eliminates a production problem, enables us to
   better meet customer requirements or improves our quality management system.
3) Determine possible solutions to accomplish the identified objective.
4) Evaluate the possible solution to determine if the desired outcome is achievable.
   Conduct trial tests of potential solutions and/or benchmark other organisations
   with a similar process in determining the desired outcome.
5) Implement the recommended change and train employees on the change.

                               CSL Management System Policy Manual

6) Evaluate the implemented changes to determine if the improvement objectives
   have been met. If not then return to the beginning of the continual improvement
7) When an interim, implemented change is determined to be effective, the change
   is formalised, documents are updated, related processes are reviewed to
   determine impact, and employees are trained on the new process.
