Document Numbering

It is important to carefully read each character in the Document Number when validating the Search Results. Each Document on the Website has a unique Document Number and title which enables positive identification by region, by sequence and by version.

  1. Regions - AF= Africa, AP= Asia Pacific, EU= Europe, NA= North America and SA= South America
  2. Sequence - Document Number starts at 0001 in each Region, and increments by one each time a completely new document is added
  3. Version - The original version of the Document is “A”, the first update is version “B”, the second update is version “C” and so forth.

When Documents are updated the version character will change but the Region and Sequence number will not change.

Document Accessibility

Previous versions of the updated Document will remain on the website and can be retrieved by the Search function. Each Purchase Order is governed by the Documents referenced on that Purchase Order even if the referenced documents are updated during the term of the Purchase Order.

The Header displays the short name of the Document, its application (location, business unit or region where it is used) and the Document Number. The Footer displays the date the Document was written (or released for use), page control, and the Document Number.
