Organization Forms and Documents Incorporated by Reference

If the MPM refers to specific organization forms or documents incorporated by reference, create a section that lists them and attach examples.

The MPM may incorporate documents and lists by reference in accordance with Standards 573.10(2) & (3). Lists and details of lengthy and complicated procedures, may be referenced provided the MPM contains a brief description of each Document Incorporated by Reference (DIR). The MPM should detail how management exercises control over those functions. Where the organization is small and the number of procedures are limited, the procedures should be contained in the MPM. The MPM should reference each DIR by name or number. The MPM should describe how the DIRs are amended, distributed and certified.
