Exclusion and non-conformity

"During a certification audit if the auditor finds that a requirement as per a certain clause of iso 9001 is not met as there is no objective evidence to support it, but the organization claims that it is not defined in their process. If the organization has incorrectly considered it as an opt out clause does it result in a non-conformity?”

Answer:

Yes, it results in a non-conformity. And the auditor can even consider it as a major non-conformity. With ISO 9001:2015 there is no longer the possibility for voluntary exclusion of a clause. Within the scope of the quality management system of the organization all applicable clauses must be considered.
