Formalization and numeration

As required by our contract - 30 welding procedures with 30 reporting formats were produced and these documents were reviewed by the client and the results were that we have to 'Formalize the 30 welding procedures with the supporting 30 reporting formats'

I am at a loss here, as to how to go about with this 'formalization' request.

If I may add - With your advice please include the 'ISO document numbering system' because as observed the above-produced documents do not have proper document numbers.

If you have a quality management system (QMS) in place you can formalize both the procedures and reporting formats by introducing them into the QMS. Someone with authority should approve the documentation. Then, include that documentation in a register of controlled documents where you identify designation, version, distribution and approval authority. Please check this procedure - Procedure for Document and Record Control - https://advisera.com/9001academy/documentation/procedure-document-record-control/ and the free preview.

About the 'ISO document numbering system' there is no particular prescription from ISO 9001:2015. The only requirement is that your organization have method that allows for a unique identification of each document. Different organizations use different methods. Use a method to identify the document and the version, by a number or a date.
