How often must staff sign policies?


Recommended Posts

I realize this is "fighting city hall" but is there a more useless requirement than having everyone review and sign off on procedures that haven't changed one iota?  In our laboratory, this is many hundreds of procedures (including the one on how to write a a procedure :). Bureaucratic make work of no value whatever.  An unfortunate example of the administrative/legal mindset versus the scientific/clinical mindset in our society.  Probably an early small sign of the coming end of our civilization when non-productive work receives such priority. Seriously.

Ours are reviewed annually as some of the standards we work towards says 'Review shall not exceed 2 years' - and we all know how long it can take to get a document revised and approved. Our staff get issued with new revisions to acknowledge but are not required to re-acknowledge old ones unless there is an issue with competency. Any case where someone has a CAPA raised against them would be an automatic reissue of the SOP to read and acknowledge, regardless of the root cause.
