To submit a change, the requestor should obtain a current copy of the document and “red-line” requested changes on the copy. Then they should fill out a Document Request ISO Template, attach the new/changed document, and submit this to his/her Department Manager for review. After reviewing the request, the Department Manager should submit QP1000-1 DOCUMENT REQUEST and any attachments to Quality Management, who should review the request to ensure the document conforms to the QMS.
If Quality finds the requested document (change) does not conform to the QMS, Quality should return the Document Request form and attachments to the Department manager with an explanation. If the requested document is determined to conform to the QMS, Quality should determine who else needs to review the new/changed document and submit the form, with attachments, to those individuals for their review and approval. Upon receiving the necessary approvals, Quality should forward the original QP1000-1 DOCUMENT REQUEST and attachments to Document Control. Flow diagrams, engineering drawings, and other documents generated outside the company (e.g., supplier blueprints, industry standards) are to be submitted to The Document Controller with a Document Request form.
