Recording serial numbers when destroying hard drives

I have query. When destroying hard drives with a iso27001 certified company. Do we need to add and record serial numbers for each HDD?

ISO 27001 does not prescribe which information should be added and recorded about assets to be destroyed, so organizations are free to include the information they see fit for their needs, based on results of risk assessment and applicable legal requirements.

Recording serial numbers for each HDD would be a good practice, because serial numbers are unique identifiers, and you wouldn’t need to create your own to keep track of destroyed assets in case of need.

These articles will provide you a further explanation about assets disposal:
