    Hi all.

    Considering that the current standard doesnt require too much documented records.
    how do you manage the next issue?

    in a procedure its is mentioned a document which is an evidence that one product is available in the storage.

    But this document is not included in the QMS, (not in the list of documents, nor list of records) is somewhat informal, but anyway gives you traceability of such product.

    Do all the documents mentioned into the procedures should be registered into the QMS?

    Please give your input

    Records are records - there is no "next issue". What ever you were doing for ISO 9001:2008 is fine for ISO 9001:2015.

    There is no need to "register" documentation. We control documents based on the risk of getting things wrong when they are not up-to-date. That includes forms.

    There is no requirement for a list of controlled documents, in 2008 or 2015 versions. It does seem worthwhile to reference them in a procedure, so as to provide users with guidance on what record to use.

    In addition to the clauses in the standard that require retained documented information (call it a record if you like) the records you should keep are those that help keep your QMS effective and customers happy.

    I presume your using a register of documents as part of the controls on documented information. The answer to your question will depend on the requirements specified in your procedure for document control. The standard does not specifically require a list or register of documents, same with the list of internal/external issues or interested parties, but if your procedure requires registration then you have to conform with it.
