Hello all,
I searched/read through as many conversations that I could find concerning "work instructions" but was not able to find an answer.
With ISO 9001-2015, is it a requirement to "control" our work instructions?

The work instructions i'm referring to are visuals, examples of how to do something. They are not our standard routers/travelers used for ea. job order.

Thanks as always for your help!

A work instruction is a document, the same as procedures, forms, visual aids, quality police, quality objectives,etc.
and according to 7.5 , is documented information and need control es per 7.5.3

Hope this helps

As previous responses have pointed out, control is required. I have to wonder why, regardless of requirements of the standard, why you wouldn't think it the prudent thing to do.

While they need to be controlled, there are different methods of control. Things like the OP mentions, we like to control at the department level.
