Gap analysis -
This is an optional pre-assessment service where we take a closer look at your existing environmental management system and compare it with ISO 14001 requirements. This helps identify areas that need more work before we carry out a formal assessment, saving you time and money.
Formal assessment -
This happens in two stages. First we review your organization’s preparedness for assessment by checking if the necessary ISO 14001 procedures and controls have been developed. We will share the details of our findings with you so that if we find gaps, you can close them. If all the requirements are in place, we will then assess the implementation of the procedures and controls within your organization to make sure that they are working effectively as required for certification.
Certification and beyond -
When you have passed the formal assessment you will receive an ISO 14001 certificate, which is valid for three years. Your client manager will stay in touch during this time, paying you regular visits to make sure your system doesn’t just remain compliant, but that it continually improves
