Documenting QMS Issues in AS9100

I would like to know if it is a requirement to document the companies external and internal issues. We are a small manufacturing concern, and I would like to have an example of a register showing external/ internal issues.

Answer:
The internal and external issues that comprise the context of the organization in AS9100 Rev D do not need to be documented information as per the standard requirements. For instance, if you have a small business where the owner is always considering these issues (such as being part of an industry action group that meets to discuss industry issues) then you may not need to write these down. However, as these need to be reviewed occasionally organizations that have several people in top management may find it very useful to write these down for later review.
If you want to see a sample of our procedure for context of the organization which includes identifying issues you can see this page: https://adv isera.com/9100academy/documentation/procedure-for-determining-context-of-the-organization-and-interested-parties/
