This is a Document Control question. I am trying to determine what "desk top procedure" means in the following statement. All types of quality documentation, except desk top procedures, must be archived by the DC coordinator.
Could it be someone trying to weasel out of controlling their departmental procedures?
They can call it anything they want, the acid test for control is "if you did not have it, would it matter?"
If they say it wouldn't matter, destroy it right then and there. That usually surfaces the truth real quick.
It may be time to review the reasons for control so people understand the benefits.
Perhaps also look at your system, does it impose such burdens that people don't want to use it?
I went down a similar road here with "desk procedures don't require control" - tearing up the purchasing "desk procedure" put an end to that.
