Answer:

ISO 27000 series do not have a standard providing description about the Document Management setup/workflow. ISO 27001 only defines what must be fulfilled (e.g., documents must be approved, be available to users, etc.). There are other ISO standards that can provide requirements you can use to setup and elaborate the workflow of a DMS (e.g., ISO 15489 Information and documentation – Records management)

If you want to see how a document management system looks like, I suggest you to take a look at our platform Conformio at this link: https://advisera.com/conformio/

Conformio has a set of functionalities for DMS that are fully compliant with ISO 27001, besides other features that can make easier to implement and manage an ISMS.
