For your ISO certification you need to have a number of documents that detail how you or your staff should complete your everyday work. A version control document allows you to track any changes you have made to your work processes.
These documents should be updated at regular intervals - eg whenever you create a new process for the task or when an employee's job description changes. To track these changes, you should use a version control document to keep your documents up to date. A version control documents shows when each document was last amended, who last amended it and who is responsible for maintaining the document.
