ISO 9001 Paper procedures

I am trying to eliminate all our paperwork instructions and procedures in binders in the plant, because they are a mess and not up to date. Question: Can you please tell me if these paper procedures require a MASTER INDEX, or MASTER RECORDS LOG of some sort to verify quickly if the latest document is on the floor or not?  It seems to me that this would be mandatory, or at the least very prudent. 

Your Thoughts please?

Yes, you are right. Please check ISO 9001:2015 clause 7.5.3.2 a). Organizations should have a way of controlling distribution of, or access to, relevant quality management system documents. If documents are on paper, I recommend using a matrix that relates document identification, version, location and who has access to it. If documents are on a digital support, I still recommend the use of a matrix to relate document identification, version, and who has access to it. This is critical to ensure that paper documents are updated whenever there is a change in version and that people is informed of the change (for paper and digital documents).
