Documenting information

Since ISO 27001 asks for the Documented information and it is a mandatory Document, do we have to document it if it is already published on our Knowledge-based collaboration Platform in the Organization with the Access limited to the Developing Team.

For e.g., If for this Process  A 14 System Acquisition Development and Maintenance, the information is available on our Knowledge-based collaboration Platform with the Access limited to the specific people. This page has all the information regarding the Secure Development Environment and all other Points in A.14 Control, then do we still have to document it on the Template or can we, during the time of Stage 1 Audit, show the description directly from this Link to the Auditor.

I’m asking this just to avoid the double task of updating the Documentation.

If your current documentation fulfills the requirements from clause 7.5 (e.g., documents are identified, reviewed and approved, protected, etc.), then you do not need to create additional documents with the same information. And if your current documentation does not fulfill clause 7.5 requirements, normally is more productive to implement the requirements in this documentation than creating new documents
