Answer
Please check ISO 9001:2015 clause 8.7 b). Segregation is one of the possible ways of dealing with a defective product. Sometimes physical segregation to a designated hold area is not possible, for example, the defective product is very big or there is not enough space for a hold location. So, segregation in a designated hold location is not mandatory. What is mandatory is to avoid the unintended use of defective products. For example, sometimes a red label is the way used to warn about product status.

The following material will provide you more information about dealing with defective product:
