TRICORN:QMS - Audits & Procedures
Procedures - ISO requires that you have documented procedures covering all aspects of your quality management system. While calibrations and machine maintenance have their own specific procedures, all other procedures can be recorded here.
The screen which is provided allows you to document your procedures using the system’s built in word processing. Alternatively, you can insert links to documentation held in other packages.
