Using/Not using quality information records



Just a brief question, as per the help documentation Quality Information Records

<i>Quality Information Record


If a quality assurance agreement or a vendor release is required for a material, you must create a quality information record (quality info record). The quality info record determines how the material can be processed further.


When a quotation or purchase order is created, the system checks whether a quality info record is required and available for the combination of material and vendor.

The system also checks whether the vendor and material-vendor combination is blocked or released for quotations, purchase orders and/or goods receipt. The execution of this check depends on the setting of the QM in procurement control key in the material master.

The quality info record displays a vendor block specified in the vendor master, the vendor's QM system, and the lock date.

You can also specify a status profile for releasing the supply relationships and the QM system of the material-vendor combination in the quality info record. You can also decide whether you want to deactivate the goods receipt inspection or perform a goods receipt inspection and/or source inspection.</i>

Can you let me know if there is any adverse impact if they are not used?
