I'm looking for some help / guidance on document control for recent excel databases I've introduced in my current work place. I have created a database for document control, training and also approved suppliers. My question is do these databases have to be given a document reference and still be controlled in the same way as paper based alternatives?. This becomes very messy with many updates throughout the year, does any one have any experience with auditors who have questioned or queried databases?
The databases have been designed to help control documents within the business to avoid non conformance's come the BRC audit, which I can only assume would be welcomed by an auditor?
I'm a recent graduate and have only been working in the industry for a couple of years so please ignore my lack of knowledge.
Thanks in advance.
