Definition of a Controlled Document
A controlled document is a reference document which is subject to quality assurance and may be modified, reviewed and released several times through the course of its lifecycle. A Controlled Document must be preserved to support LBNL’s mission because of the informational value of the data in the record.
Controlled documents and records are subject to Change Control.
An example of a record that meets the criteria for a controlled document is the documentation of components or assemblies which are subject to configuration management such as Personnel Protection Systems and Credited Controls.
Procedures should be maintained as controlled documents with approval status and effective dates.
