Answer: Root cause analysis is a mandatory requirement for ISO 27001:2013, as defined in clause 10.1 b) 1). This clause requires a nonconformity to be evaluated to identify the need to implement actions to eliminate root causes to prevent recurrence, or occurrence elsewhere, of the same nonconformity.

This article will provide you further explanation about handling non conformities:
