Please Help! Do we need a Risk Register for ISO 9001:2015

It appears that a "risk register" is not required for ISO 9001:2015.
We always post issues, situations, risks, concerns and potential problems on a large dry erase board so that the issues do not get forgotten.
Would it also be necessary to draft a register to house these risks and resolutions in?
We have our audit in 3 weeks.
On a side note - we are a distributor (not MFG) and very small company of 5

Re: Do we need a Risk Register for ISO 9001:2015

Although 6.1 specifies that the organization shall plan action to address risk there is:

a) No requirement for formal methods for risk management
b) No requirement to document risk management process
c) No requirement to retain documented information as evidence of determination of risks.

This part of the Standard has developed in to a cottage industry of risk based thinking gurus that could lead you in to performing FMEAs for all process. We developed a simple spreadsheet that addresses both Section 4 and 6.1 requirements. Our spreadsheet looks at:

a) Interested parties and their reason for interest
b) Internal issues of concern
c) External issues of concern
e) Organizational risks and how they are addressed

In the end you should not just create something to address 6.1. You should develop needed information that is helpful to top management and the organization.

Thank you kindly for the clear and well drafted response.
May I ask where you house this spreadsheet so that it is accessible to all?

At our shop, we found something we already capture, NCR's, in our NCR log, and added an NCR classification, Risk.

We look to see what methods we already have and expand upon them as opposed to develop new processes.

We also have a quote review checklist. We added a section to document Risks.

We have a process to qualify vendors and issue PO's. We integrated risk management.
Thanks to Kronos147 for your informative Post and/or Attachment!

I apologize - I wasn't asking to view the doc - just where do you keep in your company so that it is accessible? In a binder? On a shared drive?

I am not an expert, but I would keep it in an electronic folder. Then present hard copy during Mgr Review. That way it's covered.

In my experience, the more you have presented in Mgr Review, the more efficient and easy your external/3rd party audits tend to be.

I am going to start off very simple at first. Trying to capture major processes, and see how it goes.

So - I have a bit to add that I hope will deem helpful.
You do NOT have to have a "register" per se, but you do need to have a MR, so that all has to be integrated. We have a large dry erase board that I have divided up by sections that have risk: shipping, purchasing, etc. We toss up issues as they arise, discuss and manage in the meetings and then keep a running "risk register" Just excel doc - on a shared folder for reviewing and history. Hope that works!
