Naw - I 'brought the thread' to the front because it shows how things have changed. BUT - At one time it WAS one of the 'Definitive' threads on quality manuals!

You can take the hat off and sit back.

Still appears to be very valid now.

I have painful memories of massive manuals that were spread around like confetti to certification boards, customers, staff and anyone else who wanted it. Plus the procedures Work Instructions etc.

Now I have a 'signpost' into the real heart of our system.

Oh and by the way, its not a quality manual, but a Management Systems Manual.

I did this many years ago and was given a non-conformance (major) because it was not titled 'Quality'

Ahh, how the auditors change...........
