Document control is an important part of product compliance and SmartCert automatically generates a customised structure for your product compliance document control.

The document control approach taken by SmartCert  is highly flexible. If you already have a software tool such as a PLM (Product Lifecycle Management) solution, as may be the case in larger organisations, you won’t want to replicate data stores (except for backup purposes). In this case you could simply use SmartCert document control to record where your data /evidence assets are located in your organisation. However, if you are a smaller business, you may well want to use the built-in data / information uploading capability to upload compliance evidence straight into SmartCert. An added advantage of this approach is that you can easily output complete product compliance Technical Files on demand, in a compressed file-zipped format, and this can then for example, be quickly made available due to request for examination by a regulatory and/or market surveillance authority.
