A new requirement to ISO 9001 for internal auditing is to be able to show that corrections from internal audits are addressed timely. Ways to show this may be a time frame assigned for closure and evidence that this time frame is being met. However, evidence of extended times can identify an area of concern if an action is not being addressed. The requirement is to find areas that need to be addressed and address the finding. If there is no valid reason for a delay, an auditor may cite this as a concern that the internal audit system is not being provided the right support in order to benefit the company.

ISO 9001 is a set of guidelines on how your business should be set up and is often called a business framework. The focus is on developing a standard set up documents on how your manage your business, developing guidance on what you goals are, determining what your resource needs are and how you will monitor the business for improvement. Only a small section is devoted to documenting how you provide your product or service and at no point are the requirements specific to creating a product.
