In ISO world, mandatory requirements/documents are related to the words “must” or “shall”, while nonmandatory requirements/documents are related to the words “may” or “should”. Documents and records mandatory to fulfill clauses from the main sections of the standard (sections 4 to 10) are:
- Scope of the ISMS (clause 4.3)
- Information security policy and objectives (clauses 5.2 and 6.2)
- Risk assessment and risk treatment methodology (clause 6.1.2)
- Statement of Applicability (clause 6.1.3 d)
- Risk treatment plan (clauses 6.1.3 e and 6.2)
- Risk assessment report (clause 8.2)
- Records of training, skills, experience and qualifications (clause 7.2)
- Monitoring and measurement results (clause 9.1)
- Internal audit program (clause 9.2)
- Results of internal audits (clause 9.2)
- Results of the management review (clause 9.3)
- Results of corrective actions (clause 10.1)

Another situation is that some documents are required to fulfill controls that are mandatory if at least one of these situations happen:
- There are unacceptable risks that justify the application of the control
- There are legal requirements (e.g., laws or contract clauses) to which the organization must comply with that demands the application of the control
- There is a top management decision to implement the control, by considering it as good practice.

If none of the above conditions happen, there is no need to implement a document related to that control.

Besides the documents to fulfill clauses from the main sections, without a detailed evaluation of an organization, it is not possible to define how many documents an organization would have, and which ones would be an overkill.
