I am new to the company I work for and have learned that some of our divisions use stamps as inspection/approval sign-off while others use initials/signature. I would like to get every division using the same system. I would like to solicit your input on the pro's and con's of stamps vs signatures. I personally don't see any pro's to a stamp system. You need a procedure, control issuance, purchase stamps and replacements when they become unserviceable, and individual control of the stamps to prevent fraudulent use. Except for a procedure and a log, none of these problems exist with initials or signatures. I thank you for your opinions and insights.
