The organization I work for performs layered process audits, the data from those audits are entered electronically, is there any reason to maintain the hard copy document if all of the information can be accessed electronically?

Re: Layered Process Audit Records

This totally depends on what industry you work in and what your company has specified. Some industries are regulated by government, and may have specific requirements to keep hard-copy records. If not, then there is no reason why you could not do away with the paper records, with adequate controls in place (of course).

A little more background info would be helpful here....

Then it looks like whatever format you use is at the discretion of your company. Hope this helps....

Re: Layered Process Audit Records

Records are Objective Evidence but where in your system is it stated that the Audit has been completed, a Summary exists stating that the QMS is Compliant, Effective, previous CAR/PARs are closed etc....?

No, not necessary, unless you have a specific customer requirement.

Do not fill boxes with paper that nobody will look at.
