Answer:
Since ISO 9001:2015 does not mention “mission statement” I believe you are really mentioning the quality policy. There is no requirement for a quality policy updating frequency. Your organization should evaluate, for example, at management review if the current policy is still useful or should be updated.

“2. The same question for ISO 9001 2015 needs and expectation of the interested parties, how often it has to be updated?”

Answer:
There is no requirement for an updating frequency about needs and expectations of the interested parties. Your organization should monitor and evaluate the need to update or not who are those interested parties and what are their needs and expectations.

“3. Are there any other ISO 9001 2015 documentation that does have lifespan limitations?”

Answer:
There are no lifespan limitations in what concerns ISO 9001:2015 documentation. There maybe lifespan limitations in the result of re gulation or legislation, not because of ISO 9001:2015.

Be aware that the word “review” in ISO 9001:2015 does not necessarily mean updating a document or something. Review means “critical analysis”. For example, your organization should make a critical analysis of its quality policy and evaluate if it still is actual or needs some change.
