    Re: ISO9001:2015 sect. 8.5.1. a) 1) addressing The availability of documented information that defines:  the characteristics of the products to be produced, the services to be performed, or the activities to be performed. and 8.6 Release of product & servcies: The organization shall implement planned arrangements, at appropriate stages , to verify that the product and service requirements have been met. The release .......shall not proceed until the planned arrangements have been satisfactorily completed, .........

    My questions are: If this information is contained on a shop traveler that reflects the activities / planned arrangements performed, operator buy-offs and inspection acceptance of outputs to established criteria, does this shop traveler become a record that needs to be maintained?  Can a Certificate Of Conformance alone signed / stamped by inspection suffice as an acceptance of product compliance / Record of Conformity of Product (8.6)?  Can a business elect to not maintain  completed shop travelers reflecting completion of planned activities and not be concerned about a 3rd party auditor wanting to view them, as long as they are able to provide visibility / outline of what the planned activities consisted of and the signed COC?
