A list of events or items that must be followed up and, at some stage, noted as being completed or closed. Typically they are created in the field or on-site and allocated to a responsible party (employee or subcontractor). At a later time the item will be rectified by the responsible party and upon inspection of their work the item will be closed indicating satisfactory completion of follow up task or event.

A typical example of a punch list / snag list is recording incomplete works or defects in construction projects, with field users inspecting the work of employees or subcontractors during the construction phase of the project.  These defects must be addressed and rectified by the responsible party and closed to the satisfaction of the field user prior to project completion and building handover.
