Can you please advise how do we code in ISO and how do we code in general, in case of no ISO.
In case of ISO I am talking about ISO 9001.
Company name (i.e: how many letters do we use), Department How many letter in case of supply chain or accounting), procedure #
There is no universal rule to follow when coding ISO documents.
I can only tell you about my practice.
ISO 9001:2015 invites us to follow the process approach. So, I model how the quality management system works, as a set of interrelated processes, and I code each process with a number and a verb+noun. Like:
4.Develop new service
Now I use that numbering as the basis for coding the documentation. Like, for example:
PD1.0 – Process Description 1 version 0. Any work instruction related with Process Description 1 is coded as WI.1.1; WI 1.2; …
Forms, I code them with a serial number.
The following material will provide you information about the document control:
