Document preservation

“Is it true that when a flyer of any sort is posted it MUST be in a plastic cover? While we know dates are required, is it really necessary to post everything in plastic?”

Answer:
No, ISO 9001:2015 does not mandate the use of plastic covers.
I believe that that idea came to life because of ISO 9001:2015 clause 7.5.3.2 b) about preservation.

If preservation is an issue because the flyer, for example, will be posted on a place where sun and rain can deteriorate its legibility, perhaps the plastic cover makes sense as protection. But it is not mandatory nor needed everywhere.
