Re: Quality Records

Is there a minimum retention time for any of the Quality records?
I believe the strict interpretationist would say "NO" but some common sense would apply to 4.2.4 "provide evidence of conformity...and of the effective operation of the...". Your "one-day record retention" requirement might not fly for example:notme: . One year, may have a shot:cfingers: ...:2cents:

That's a good point. Record retention has been kicked around in other threads, but generally records should be retained for the following:-

Customers' requirements (some may specify)
Regulatory/Statutory (as stated in Roxane's post)
For other legal purposes, such as patent protection
To facilitate performance trends
Because your registrar says you must to demonstrate the qms is improving

and there are probably more, but it's late and my bed time.:sleep:

Good Night!
