    Hello! Does ISO/TS state a time frame for the review of documents (ex: for relevancy, version, etc.)? I thought it was listed in the specification as 1 year but I've read through it again today and it doesn't seem to list any specific time frame. Specification only seems to state, over and over, that the documents must be "maintained". Thank you.

    No. There's no such requirement in ISO 9001, TS or similar. There was once a "should" (if memory serves) to suggest that reviews should be "timely" to stop delays in getting control plans etc to the people who needed them and that might have been as far back as QS-9000

    Thank you Andy. Maybe I read it my CB's rulebook for obtaining certification. I'll read that again and let everyone know what I find.
