Sign-offs on procedure

For ISO 9001:2015,  when we write a procedure, do we have to get sign-offs by departments to show it is accurate?

One should consider two topics: authority and implementation effectiveness.

ISO 9001:2015 requires that documents belonging to a quality management system have to be approved by an authorized role. Having just a signature evidencing approval by an authorized role is enough. ISO 9001:2015 does not require elaboration and verification signatures.
A good implementation practice, to avoid resistance and/or mistakes, is to ask departmental participation during the development of a procedure.
