Format as controlled document

If an auditor was to come into a workplace and ask an employee a question related to a procedure and the employee refers to the computer to find a document related to the question, I understand that would be sufficient. Would the auditor accept the same document if it was posted as a memo format?

Answer
Yes, the auditor will accept the memo format as long as your organization can demonstrate document control over that memo. One designation, changes controlled, distribution controlled, approval controlled.

The following material will provide you more information about document control:
