Is there a standard that requires a surveillance audit to be conducted once a year or its the decision of the certification body.
 

Answer:

ISO 17021 is a standard that establishes requirements for bodies providing audit and certification of management systems. This standard establishes that the surveillance audit shall be conducted at least once a year. Or in some cases it is performed twice a year (depending of the certification body and the company). Anyway, basically there are 3 types of audit for all ISO standards: 

A - First initial certification audit: It is performed only the first year
B - The surveillance audit: It is performed only after the first initial certification audit, and generally it is performed once a year, or in some cases it is performed twice a year. 
C - The recertification audit: It is performed only after the first initial certification audit and the surveillance audit, when the certificate expires after 3 years.

This is a cycle (A, B, C) that is repeated after the third year, but removing the first init ial certification audit.
