-Context of the Organization... and "​Interested Parties"​ involve ​some of the more interesting requirements in ISO 9001:2015 & AS 9100:2016 because this section involves socio-politically driven requirementsFew people recognize / appreciate ​that interpretation ​of these requirements is "​country dependent"​.+While poorly described in ISO 9001:2015 & AS 9100:2016, the "Context of the Organization"... and "​Interested Parties" ​actually ​involve ​cultural relativismCultural relativism is the idea that a person'​s beliefs, values, and practices should be understood based on that person'​s own culture, rather than be judged against the criteria ​of another.
  
-When reading ISO 9001:2015, sec. 4.2 “Understanding the needs and expectations of interested parties”, the interpretation varies depending upon whether the country is communist, socialist (closed or restricted economies) or a free society with a free market economy.+This means that interpretation of the requirements of ISO 9001:2015 & AS 9100:2016 changes when crossing cultural boundaries. Or, stated another way, interpretation of the requirements of ISO 9001:2015 & AS 9100:2016 is "​country dependent"​.

 +Recognizing that some of the requirements contained in ISO 9001:2015 & AS 9100:2016 involve socio-politically driven requirements,​ one can easily understand how this severely limits the value of ISO 9001:2015 & AS 9100:2016.

 +For example, when reading ISO 9001:​2015 ​& AS 9100:2016, sec. 4.2 “Understanding the needs and expectations of interested parties”, the interpretation varies depending upon whether the country is communist, socialist (i.e., closed or restricted economies) or a free society with a free market economy.
  
 This accounts for the following definition being completely incongruent with businesses operating in a free society with a free-market economy (the “Example” having been added by TC 176). This accounts for the following definition being completely incongruent with businesses operating in a free society with a free-market economy (the “Example” having been added by TC 176).

 ISO 9001:2015, Annex A.3 makes this "//​requirement//"​ extremely simple for an organization to comply with... because whatever the organization decides, that's "​what"​ is required. ISO 9001:2015, Annex A.3 makes this "//​requirement//"​ extremely simple for an organization to comply with... because whatever the organization decides, that's "​what"​ is required.
