Templates, forms and records

The difference between forms & templates.For instance I'm doing a internal audit report layout, should it be a form / template. And as per iso must form have the unique form number displayed ?

Answer:

The ISO 9000 - Quality management systems – Fundamentals and vocabulary, doesn't describe the terms "template" and "form". The difference is that the template is only a model of document or record, but when it becomes approved and adopted by the organization it becomes a form. When the form is filled in, it becomes a record, evidence that activity is performed as prescribed in corresponding procedure.

The ISO 9001 does not explicitly requires that the records have unique form number or ID, but it requires them to be easily identifiable so you may say that ID number of the form should be displayed on it.
