ced5a5f5e9 References to Other Documents in the QMS One advantage of electronic documents is that links to other documents, of any type, can be embedded in the document. On the main file server, of course, there only needs to be one copy of the current version. It is much better to include reference to them, specifically state that they are excluded and why, and what the plans are if the current situation ever changes. By the nature of electronic documents, if a single character anywhere in it is changed, then the entire document is changed. However, it is generally not a good idea to simply omit the excluded parts from the QM. 1This standard is the United States’ legal equivalent of the ISO9001:2008 international standard. Therefore, revision control should appropriately be at the document level and not the “page” level, because “pages” may not exist.
ASQ: The Global Voice of Quality. In your real document, each link would actually point to a real document on your file server. Never assume that “everyone knows” what is meant – your next auditor may come from outside your industry. The example QM was prepared in the United States using OpenOffice.org Writer, and assuming US standard letter size paper (216 x 279 mm). This means that there are cases where regulatory requirements may need to be addressed in the QM. A digital signature, then, proves that neither the signature or the document is forged or altered. Section 7.3 of the example QM demonstrates that. In the second phase, anything in your QM is fair game for the auditor to look at. (Note that Mythical Airlines is also a customer of Mythical True Value Metrology.) Traceability Section 7.5.3 talks about “traceability.” When dealing with a calibration organization, it is important to always draw a clear distinction between the two most common – and misused – meanings of this term.
