ISO 9001 Audit finding clarification

The basis for classifying an Audit finding as major under the ISO 9001 system.
The process appears very subjective sometimes.

Sometimes I think the same. Sometimes I think there is a “political” use of the classification. As a general rule, you can follow that a major nonconformity is a situation where an organization:

Completely failed to fulfill a certain requirement.
Has a process that has completely fallen apart – rules are not followed systematically.
Has several minor nonconformities that are related to the same process or to the same element of the management system
If a certification mark is misused
If a minor nonconformity, raised during the previous audit, has not been resolved within the deadline – such a small nonconformity automatically becomes a major one.
