What is the difference between version and Revision ?
The version is applicabe for the Higher level documetation system, Revision is the something which is given for the Level 3 and Level 4 documents.
We need to clarify this thing at first.
your SOP may have the Version :01
and Revision 02
i.e. you have the documentation ystem having version 01
and that pertucular SOP has the revision 01.
If you are doing moduification in the SOP you will have
and Revision 03
If you changing the whole system of the numbering or major change in the documetation system which have impact on the total SOP’s and Formats etc
then you will have to revise the version of the documentation system
Hence you will have
Revision : 01 or 00 ( first document) as applicable in your system.
Hence the revisions will start from first and will change the version.
You have to put both the version number and revision number on the SOP.
I think this will help.
Comments in the subject will be appreciated.
