German term or phrase: Roteintragsverfahren
The "Roteintragsverfahren" has been added to the technical instruction dealing with the document management process. A Roteintrag seems to be a way of flagging corrections, e.g.:

Dies macht es möglicht, nachfolgende Änderungen an den Unterlagen per Roteintrag vorzunehmen.

But not necessarily, e.g.:

Roteinträge mit signifikanten Auswirkungen auf Festigkeit müssen vorab mit der Statik/Festigkeit abgesprochen werden und sollen nach Ermessen des Konstrukteurs in den Roteintragsordnern mitgezeichnet werden.

Explanation:
A common term/concept in document management.

See e.g.

In word processing, redlining refers to marking text that has been edited. Typically, redlining is used when two or more people are working on a document together; each individual can redline the text he or she has added or edited. The redlined text will then appear in a special color (or as bold) so that others can see the changes that have been made.
