IATF Document Hierarchy

Per IATF requirements, is it acceptable to have the Manual, Policy, and Procedures all as Level I Documents? Looking at the Pyramid, it appears as though the Manual and Policy should be level I, and the procedures listed as level II, not combines as equal entities as Level I documents?

According to clause number of 7.5.1 of the IATF 16949:2016  standard; the quality manual shall be documented. Although it is not a requirement, the quality policy generally continues to be documented in the quality manual.
With this new standard, the word  ‘’procedure’’ is not used. Also, there is no definition for the Level 1 document.

To learn more about the mandatory documents, see this free white paper: Checklist of Mandatory Documentation Required by IATF 16949:2016 https://info.advisera.com/16949academy/free-download/checklist-of-mandatory-documentation-required-by-iatf-16949
