New company logo and controlled documents

We have a new company logo. Is it necessary to immediately update or change our current company logo to New company logo in all of our controlled documents? Even if we have incoming surveillance audit in less than one month? Is it indicated to ISO 9001 standards?

Answer
If your logo is part of the documents’ identification and if your logo was changed, your organization will have to update documentation. Since your next surveillance audit will take place in less than a month perhaps that update should be planned to take place not in a moment but along a period of time. So, easier documents to update can be updated right away, for other documents you can develop a plan start to implement it and show it during next surveillance audit. For example, auto companies sometimes make changes in their component drawings and allow suppliers to use previous versions until stock of those versions goes to zero.
