Changes after an internal audit

I am an internal auditor and recently I reviewed procurement process for our Investment Company. The company is ISO 9001:2015 compliant.

If we make recommendation to change the process and forms used for their procurement process, will this affect their ISO status and require more audit by the ISO Auditor?

Answer
No, changes made after an internal audit do not affect ISO status nor require more audits by the certification body, unless those changes are very profound. Let me add that I, as a certification body auditor, see very positively a quality management system where changes are made after internal audits. For me that is a sign of a caring organization and caring internal auditor team.
