Hello everyone. I am currently working for a startup med device company who is just now moving out of R&D and is trying to establish a functioning QMS. I am a document control specialist. This is the 3rd MD company I've run document control for. My question is very basic so I apologize for taking up space on the internet. So one thing I have never allowed my employees to do is submit documentation that has been printed front to back (on both sides of the paper) as I was trained this way early on by my QA Director. Its always been one side regardless of how many pages they have. Nobody has ever questioned me but now that I'm at a startup where most of the people here have never worked in an quality controlled environment, I am having to give explanations for even the most minor changes such as this. Can anyone confirm for me if this actually is a no no and if its states it anywhere in a standard or guideline? I dislike the idea of having both sides printed on documents so I'm hoping I can go back with cold hard evidence to support this. Thank you.
