It sounds like this comes down to document control (DC), for example, in manufacturing, any hard copies are stamped with something like...confidential
material, not for public release" thus after the employees are done with the copies,
a) they go back to either the originator where they get destoryed/shredded according to the standard process and ISO procedures
b) or they 'should' go through the shredding process; ie. tossed in the shredding box/bin, stamped "not vaild as of mm/dd/yy"
In the light of construction contracts, I think it would be even MORE important to have some sort of tighter procedures on DC being how often
blueprints change in order to NOT mix the old docs with the new.
Would I be correct in this? I'm no CE but have worked in/around construction for a few years and it would just seem to me this would make sense.
However, I have been employed by major player in the semi-conductor bussiness world wide and I can tell you this, their DC is daunting!!
