It depends on the situation and the issue being corrected. The Certification Body may accept:
- Documentary evidence (e.g., missing records)
- Photographic evidence
Important Note: there may be situations where demonstrations of the corrective action can only be confirmed by a further site visit. The decision about a return visit is at the discretion of the Certification Body and depends on the audit results and the corrective actions required. If in doubt, operations should consult their Certification Body or auditor about the type of evidence that will be acceptable for their situation.
