Answer:
Minor nonconformity - a nonconformity that does not affect the capability of the management system to achieve the intended results.

Major nonconformity - a nonconformity that affects the capability of the management system to achieve the intended results. For example, if the company completely failed to fulfill a certain requirement; if a process has completely fallen apart; or if you have several minor nonconformities that are related to the same process or to the same element of your management system.
