We are working at a small manufacturing company which is in the process of implementing a QMS according to ISO 9001.
Our question is about the need of a signature on procedures and work instructions. Even if most of the personnel have access to the quality documents on our Intranet some persons don’t and our solution to this problem is to give them a folder consisting the quality documents needed. Is it enough to have a signed copy of each document in a master copy folder or does every copy distributed in the organisation have to be signed to ensure that the document is valid. It is a problem for us to get an electronic signature and therefor we wonder if it is OK to do it this way?
We look forward to your reply!
