Does AS9100 require traceability to operators performing the work such as stamps or sign off?
Hi all of our AS9100D production is traceable back to an operator through stamps and signatures to show completion of the required processes. 8.5.2 onwards will help you to determine your requirements for process identification then it is your determination of "signing off". Each operation here requires a stamped finish with each stamp traceable to an individual operator, with the CofC signed by the final inspector acknowledging all the processes are accounted for and complete.

AS9100 section 8.6.b does require traceability to "the person(s) authorizing release" of product. Section 8.5.2 states "The organization shall implement planned arrangements, at appropriate stages, to verify that the product and service requirements have been met.... When acceptance authority media are used (e.g., stamps, electronic signatures, passwords), the organization shall establish controls for the media. " If individual operators are verifying their own work, what @mattador78 said would be a good practice.

We also store a digital copy of all stamped paperwork and a signed copy of the CofC as a traceable record, admin wise that was a bit of a ball ache to begin with. However, it is brilliant to be able to show that next to our ERP information during an audit. All staff have also signed to acknowledge that the stamps are company property and misuse or willful damage can result in a disciplinary procedure, in 12 months of using them there has been no loss damage or misuse by anyone (except for me who in the first week dropped his and ran it over with a forklift :oops:)

8.6.b requires traceability to the person(s) authorizing the release of product.
8.7.2.d requires documented information that identifies the authority deciding the action in respect of the nonconformity.
How you document traceability is up to the organization.

There is not an AS9100 requirement for traceability of all operators performing work. The use of stamps or initials for traceability to any other persons performing work would be the organization's choice, or a customer requirement.

We have inspection stamps issued to all inspectors, and the person dispositioning nonconforming product has to sign off. We also maintain traceability of weld personnel performing work due to our requirements for continuity to maintain their welder qualifications - this is not an AS9100 requirement, it is a customer requirement.
