1. GAP ANALYSIS
Our ISO Certification Process begins with an optional ISO accreditation gap analysis performed by our qualified assessors. Your management system gets evaluated against each clause of the relevant ISO accreditation standard. The ISO accreditation gap analysis aims to identify the compliance level of your existing management system and provides an opportunity to further develop any areas for improvement.
At the completion of the ISO accreditation gap analysis, we provide an assessment report outlining any faults in your management system that needs to be addressed prior to your ISO Accredited certification.
STAGE ONE ASSESSMENT
The main objectives of the ISO accreditation Stage One assessment is to evaluate your management system documentation, including policies, processes, management review records, scope and context as well as system implementation. It sets the foundation for the ISO accreditation stage two assessment.
STAGE TWO ASSESSMENT
The ISO accreditation stage two assessment is the final step of the initial ISO accreditation certification process. To achieve ISO accredited certification against your systems, we need to verify that the documented requirements of the standard are implemented across the business. We visit your offices and premises as well as partake in discussions with relevant individuals in your business.
The aim of the ISO accreditation stage two assessment is to verify that you are doing what your system documentation says you do. Your management system is assessed and verified as being implemented against the relevant ISO Accreditation standard.
Once your ISO Accreditation stage two assessment is verified and the process is complete, a ‘Statement of Certification’ is issued, confirming compliance with the relevant ISO Accreditation standard.
This certification is valid for a three-year period from the date of issue.
Surveillance assessments will need to be performed on a regular basis to maintain your ISO Accredited certification.
