4.8 Product ID and Traceability
Help!! I'm an MSc student working for an ISO9001 registered company. I'm now working to move our systems onto QS9000. In the past the requirement for ID and traceability has been met by stating in our quality manual that we have no requirement for ID of product. Our only means of tracing anything is a date stamp on completed units.
I'm guessing that this will go down badly with our auditor.
What level of ID and traceability would be expected?
We are a manufacturer of precision fluid power components (valves, pumps, etc.) and we ship approximately 15,000 assorted units and components each month.
