6 DOCUMENT CONTROL
Document control ensures that only the most recently approved versions of documents
are used in the process of operating, maintaining, and modifying the nuclear facility.
Document control helps ensure that:
important facility documents are properly stored;
revisions to documents are controlled, tracked, and completed in a timely manner;
revised documents are formally distributed to designated users; and
information concerning pending revisions is made available.
As controlled documents are updated to reflect changes to the requirements and/or
physical installation, the contractor must ensure that:
1) Each updated document is uniquely identified and includes a revision number and
2) Each outdated document is replaced by the latest revision.
A diagram of the features of document control functions is provided in Figure 6-1.
