Legal requirements:

All procedures must meet recognised codes of practice as well as obligations required by current legislation within South Africa and within the normal parameters of the defined job/task.

Terminology:

Manual Inspect Notes - this is a term used to refer to notes that are identified as requiring inspection by the operator and they are not processed through the machine. The machine records the number of manual inspect notes per batch and this figure is a key factor in the balancing of a batch of processed notes.
