I am creating a document for our ISO system. It includes Annex’s. How do I number the annexes? Will they be the same document number as the document, and will it be in the same format as the rest of the document or are these numbered separately?
There is no general rule that one must follow. What we must bear in our mind is the need to clearly identify documents and allow an easy way of checking it they are updated. When I use annexes I call them annexes 1 or 2 or 3 of the document X, I don’t follow the same format, actually I use annexes to be free of using the most useful format for each situation. And I use a separate way of identifying versions to allow changing the main document without changing the annex and vice versa.
