Document Control Procedure content

In the procedure for document and record control doc, it says...

“Each external document which is necessary for the planning and operation of the ISMS/compliance with GDPR must be recorded in the incoming mail register. The incoming mail register must contain the following information: (1) document number, (2) sender, (3) document name, (4) date of receipt, (5) name of the person to whom the document has been forwarded.”

1. Is this something that is needed for ISO?
2. How do I know which external documents are necessary for ISMS  compliance?
3. Also is there an incoming mail register document as part of the templates?

1. Is this something that is needed for ISO?

For ISO management systems, like ISO 27001, the management of external documents is mandatory.

2. How do I know which external documents are necessary for ISMS  compliance?

External documents are any documents not owned or controlled by an organization that are required to its operation, either mandatory or voluntarily adopted. Examples of external documents to be controlled are Laws (e.g., SOX and EU GDPR), standards and regulations (e.g., the ISO 27001 itself), and documents and records from customers, suppliers, and partners (e.g., contracts, service agreements, product/service specification, operation manuals, etc.)

3. Also is there an incoming mail register document as part of the templates?

Incoming mail register is not a mandatory document, you can simply have a table where you register who received some important external document, or where such a document is stored.
