Document control for tooling drawings (Document control clause 7.5.3)

Can someone shed some light on how they are controlling their tooling drawings to meet the document control clause (7.5.3)?

We have thousands and thousands of drawings for our molding and stamping tools at our tooling center and are having a hard time figuring out the best / easiest way to go about this.

Our tooling center is not currently under our scope but now they will be for our transition audit to IATF.

Currently each department has access to a drive where they keep the drawings in folders.
If we write into our standard that they are the ones who have access / authority of the drawings will this be okay?

I think that is a reasonable start. Just make sure you touch on all the key words in the standard without overdoing it. Good luck.

Agree with Golfman that it's a good start. Just make sure that you are compliant with the standard. Are they controlled from unauthorized changes? Are they protected from loss or damage? Is the correct revision available at points needed? Are obsolete revisions properly controlled? If what you're doing complies then you're in good shape.

Here is verbiage from our work instruction for controlling tooling prints. We had a minor for not controlling them so we came up with this as a supplement to our Die Design and Build Process. We have not had an issue since with the auditor.
