Must the QC records indicate the actual numerical result of the QC test (e.g. compression, fixer retention) or just whether it passes or fails?
QC records must show the numerical results of those QC tests for which numbers are a natural by-product of the test. These numerical results will indicate whether the QC tests are within the required action or control limits. These numerical results must be provided in addition to the pass/ fail indication. However, for tests such as artifact evaluation, where no meaningful quantitative test results are produced, a pass/fail indication would be appropriate and sufficient.
