How to Define "Site" in Management System

Hello Friends,
I've been searching for days on the cove on this subject of "site" when it xomes to management systems.
What is a site? What defines a site? Is it explicitely discussed in any of the ISo management systems such as 9001, 14001 etc?

We have defined sites in our management system based on geographical proximity. So areas with same operations and close together are grouped together under a site, while areas further away also under different site even though the same activities are carried out at another site. But is this correct in itself? Based on what is this justified? Maybe each organization can define according to preference? Can a certification body have a say in this?

Your suggestions are kindly welcome.
Thank you.

This might be an official document, but it really doesn't include all the situations that an organization might be categorized as. Such as Single Site or Single Site Special (in the past sometimes called Campus Structure).

When in doubt, as your Certification Body.

We were able to convince our NB we had a "Campus" of two buildings. One is our HQ - we receive mail, phone calls, and visitors, operate the design and development, and business. Our other building was an annex that is only used for production activity.
