Dear Mr. Marc :
thanks a lot for your attention i understood from your answer that the new m,anual should be issue 1 revision 2 right but i need some clarification considering the procedures in those factories that were not review yet hhey will have issue 1 revision 1 !! it will not be a problem right ??? thank you again.

Sincerly yours

The bottom line is documents with references to the quality manual (including procedures) at each plant will have to mapped. That is to say each will have to be reviewed for references. References to the old manuals will have to be changed to point to the single manual. If you set up your system well this should not be a major chore, but it will take some time. The revision level of your single manual will advance one from its current rev as will procedures revised to reflect new reference pointers.
