Referring to Inventory of assets from the ISMS Scope document

Item 3.4 Resources of the ISMS Scope document says it may add a reference to the asset inventory. The asset inventory is performed once defined the scope of the ISMS, then how could I add a reference to that document.

Answer: Clause 4.2.1 a) of ISO 27001 requires you to document the scope in terms of assets, so basically you have 2 choices:

a) List most of your assets in the Scope document - I wouldn't recommend that, or

b) Refer to the Asset inventory - much better solution since you will (probably) make it anyway. 

Now, since you are writing the ISMS Scope document now, and Asset inventory later, you can just say that Asset inventory will be developed until certain date.
