Product Technical Folder

Managing the Quality Assurance Process, Related Documents and Technical Files

Business Challenge

Companies today are struggling to find better ways to manage product-related documents and more effectively monitor quality assurance activity throughout the product life cycle. They need to support good manufacturing practices. They also need to meet new document storage and product technical file requirements for various regulations including the European New Toy Safety Directive and US CPSC Product Certification equirements. Creating General Conformity Certificates (GCC) and Production Test Plans (PTP), plus tracking expired documents and document submissions creates an additional level of complexity. Fully accessing the Supply Chain and managing the sheer volume of paperwork associated with these tasks, while being able to easily track and retrieve information by SKU, is a challenge well beyond the scope of typical in-house recordkeeping programs.


Bureau Veritas can help you gain control of document overload and improve how you manage your quality assurance process. Our solution called Product Technical Folder is a web-based content management system that provides a complete solution to help you manage quality assurance workflows, track approval processes, and archive product related documents. Through secure online access, you can review, retrieve and maintain your technical files globally 24/7. Easy-to-use functionality includes “one click" technical file generation and automated GCC and Production Test Plan generation. And as part of our OneSource web platform, Product Technical Folder integrates with other supply chain solutions to provide further enhancements for cost reduction and business process management.
