Listen 9.3 mandatory documentation. A recap
In this lesson. We'll do a recap of clauses where documentation is mandatory
and we'll also do a recap of clauses where additional documentation is not mandatory that it is recommended.
The following clauses are required to have documentation as per the ISO 27,001 standard.
The auditors will focus a lot on mandatory documentation
and this forms the basis of your ice amiss.
Missing mandatory documentation could jeopardize your certification result
depending on the extent of the missing documentation.
Remember, the standard isn't really prescriptive in terms of how documentation must be done,
it must just be done in a logical manner that includes all of the required content.
And in a way it can be communicated to the relevant parties
as well as shown to your certification auditors.
So the clauses where documentation is mandatory
is Khloe's 4.3.

and corrective action evidence.
Now there are also a couple of clauses where the ISO 27,001 standard doesn't specifically say documentation is mandatory, but it would be quite challenging to demonstrate effectiveness in these areas to your auditors without it.
So for these clauses, it is recommended that you maintain some form of documentation in any case,
at a level that shows your certification auditor that the process is designed and is operating effectively.
The majority of processes and procedures would automatically generate some form of documented output,
whether it's reports, meeting minutes, emails, memos and so forth.

and which clauses don't specifically require documented information as per the standard,
but we're additional documentation would definitely help for the audit
and demonstrating complaints to the standard.
