Records Management is an essential part of ISO 9001 compliance. It is required to protect obsolete documents from unintentional use through timely and proper disposal of documents. It is also required to neatly mark and organize old records that are kept for reference.
ISO 9001 compliance requires that companies have an approval system that provides password-protected electronic approval of records. Companies also need to have a review process that allows updating and reviewing of companies’ records.
It is very important to record logs of when, why and what changes are made to documents. In addition, current, draft, review, approval etc. status must be maintained. Document versions must be neatly labeled with date and revision level.
