Welcome to the Cove, paciffic. :bigwave:

What has prompted this question? At first glance, I am tempted to say that they are the same, but if people within your organization are using both terms, you should ask them what the steps are with "document review" and "document verification". There may be a difference between the two terms within your company.

If you look at the wording: Document "review" would mean the initial review of the requirements, and document "verification" would be the act of verifying that the documents (completed) are accurate. I believe and in my opinion.

Very good point Coury. In my site, however, the two are the same...but I can see what you mean.

Difference between Doc Review and Doc Verification

I actually do see a subtle but important difference. When a document is created or changed I would consider that verification. Is it right for its intended use, "The right tool for the right job". I ask everyone that creates a controlled document in our organization or at one of our clients "What is this document supposed to do? Is it worth the cost of maintaining that document and peoples proficiency using that document? and don't kid yourself every document you maintain has a cost and that cost can skyrocket if you don't maintain the document or verify it is really needed.
After initial release I consider review to be a periodic review by a responsible party to see if the tool ( the document) is still needed and doing the job it was created to do.
If it isn't being used lose it or find out why it isn't being used. That means don't just read it, compare it to the process and ask the people impacted by the document if it still makes sense and is useful. If the answer is no then change it or obsolete it.
I think these are two different tasks performed for different reason's at different times and both can add value.
I personally think most companies way over document everything. That just puts them in a box in some situations where they feel artificially constrained from changing and improving or they worse case stare at some forgotten never used document when the auditor waves it under their nose. Ewww!
It is like packing for vacation take out half the clothes and double the money you were going to take and it should be about right!
