    This means the documentation enables us to identify the person who authorized the release. It may or may not be the inspector or lab technician.

    Usually this requirement applies to the outgoing inspection prior to delivery. The inspector who performed the outgoing inspection must ensure that the inspection record has:
    • the actual measured values of the inspected products compared with the product specifications - 8.6a;
    • his/her name, signature, or any information identifying the inspector - 8.6b

    Your statement seems consistent with the second paragraph in 8.6 @tony s , however, it is also important to note the requirement ("shall") in the first paragraph of 8.6, which states "...at appropriate stages...".

    It is also important to remember that authorized release traceable to the person(s) authorizing the release, be established in a method that is beneficial to the organization and not simply because it is a requirement of the standard. Organizations need to determine the necessary stages (frequency) and methods of verification/release/traceability, which allows the organization to limit exposure if a failure occurs.

    Be well.
