How should facilities document performance of the required QC tests to comply with the regulations?
Performance of the required QC tests must include clear and legible documentation. The documentation must include test results and the dates when the tests were performed. For each test result that falls outside the action limits, the documentation must also include the date and the corrective actions taken and their results. The data and results should be properly charted or tabulated. Facilities may consult any appropriate quality control manual for examples of charts and tables or establish their own format for documenting the test data and the results
