Is this a stub or are there no mandates?

Stub Citations

A Stub Citation is typically a partial sentence that is used as a pre-cursor to a fuller Citation.

Stub Citations do not contain Mandates. They don’t convey any particular ideas of what the reader should do. They simply serve as a mechanism to present the information that follows.


ISO 22301: Societal Security - Business Continuity Management Systems - Requirements, Corrected Version

In the image from above the highlighted texts are all Stub Citations.


No Mandates (Informational)

No Mandate Citations, or Informational Citations, are Citations that contain no auditable action items and instead just provide information, i.e. “For the purposes of this document, an organization and a person acting as a data manager both fall under the same jurisdiction.“
