Answer: No, a version number does not have to remain on the actual document.

2. Does a version number have to be on the documents at all as long as you have version history showing under the Standard Documents under your QMS?

Answer: No, please check ISO 9001:2015 clause 7.5.3.2 c) about version control. You need to figure out how you will identify documents so that the people who need to use them know there is a change, as well as ensure that if a user has two versions of a document, they know which is the latest version to use. So, how does your QMS guarantee that users are aware that they are using the latest version? Some organizations instead of a version number use a date, others use a name, others only control digital versions and whenever a document is printed it has a warning to users saying that they don’t control documentation on paper.
