We state attachments as supplemental forms, data or material used for clarification or explanation. Regarding these attachments to a procedure or work instruction, can the attachment be of a different rev level and effectivity date? Say in the case of using a form?
"Do forms or other attachments always need to carry MATCHING rev levels & effective dates - as their parent work instruction & procedure? IE: Do you need to advance rev/effective date of attachments/forms with each procedure/WI change?
I would think - "not necessarily" - the WI or Procedure could carry an advanced rev or date identification when the form/attachment is not part of a change/update --
BUT if the method of identifying & controlling document changes in (4.5) is such that "all" form/attachment rev levels & dates will be advanced with any change to procedure & WI then you would need to update the rev levels on each form/attachment every time a change is made to the "parent document.
What works for us is to simply state the "form or attachment" identifying number in the parent document - then identify rev levels & effective date changes to them in the master listings for "forms"
Hope this doesn't muddy up the waters....
