I conducted ISO 9001: 2008 internal audit for my company previously and there is a finding on retention period issue for a quality record. The document owner (from IT dept) refused to include the retention period of the record as the task is done annually once. When the task is carried out, a record will be added in the form. There are 15+ lines in the form which means that it can last for the next 10 over years (1 year 1 record). In this matter, it is quite difficult for the owner to indicate a figure for the retention period, can I have your advice on this matter? Thanks!
