Answer

If you change a form and at the same time you keep the its designation, you should change the revision code. If you don’t do that there is the risk of different people using different versions of the form at the same time. Many years ago, before ISO 9001 implementation, I was quality manager at a company and was discussing by telephone the features of a product with one of our commercial representatives in another country. After some time, we realized that we were using different versions of the product specification. We only find out because, fortunately, each version had text in different colors.

The following material will provide you more information about effectiveness:
