Evidence is required to close each non-compliance and is required to submit a corrective action plan. Each piece of evidence can be no larger than 30MB. We accept a wide array of file types including images, movies, and documents of various kinds.
Most non-compliances require more than one piece of evidence, which include both an immediate change and a plan of action showing how the non-compliance will not be repeated in the future. For example, if during an audit fire extinguishers are found with incorrect pressure, the auditor might issue SR-OH 1.2. Appropriate evidence of improvement for this non-compliances could include a combination of: pictures of the new or improved fire extinguishers in the locations specified in the corrective action plan, a receipt of purchase or order, new or updated fire extinguisher checking policy or procedure document, and evidence of training and communication to the workers and the person responsible. A combination of evidence types is the best way to present actions taken to close a non-compliance.
