gap assessments

Gap assessments are conducted to determine the gaps in your current Food Safety / QMS / OHAS / EMS system against the requirements of the standard you wish to be certified to. Gap assessments are often conducted prior to implementation to gauge the amount of work involved and to compile a budget and project plan for the implementation. Gap assessments are also conducted when companies wish to progress from one certification standard to another and wish to determine the gaps between the current and the new standard.

Using an Entecom consultant to conduct a gap assessment will not only highlight the deficiencies in the current system but will also provide clear guidance as to how to address the deficiencies, saving you time, money and endless hours of frustration.

Entecom offers Pre-certification readiness audits for companies who have been progressing with their system implementation and think that they are almost ready for the audit. These companies often wish to have an external company such as Entecom, conduct a Pre-certification readiness audit to ensure that they have not missed anything and that that they have in fact addressed all the requirements of the relevant standard before going ahead with the certification audit. A Pre-certification readiness audit performed by Entecom will give your company a practice run and a feel for how the actual certification audit will be conducted.

internal audits

Internal audits are often the most under utilised management tool in food safety, OHAS, ISO 14001 and Quality Management Systems. An effectively implemented Internal Auditing Programme can have a significant impact on company performance. For this reason, many companies often utlise the expertise of Entecom consultants to lead the internal auditing team and to ensure that the auditing methodology addresses systems as well as operational aspects. Trained internal auditors should not only look for conformance to standards but they should also look beyond the obvious and suggest innovative ways of doing things better and smarter. Entecom consultants draw from our experience in industry and can always add value to any management system. We see ourselves as builders of systems and catalysts for change which makes us effective internal auditors. To learn more about our Internal Auditing service click here



The Safe Serve Hygiene programme has been developed to assist the local hospitality industry with the implementation of a food safety standard that is based on local and international food safety standards. Catering companies can progress from a Basic Hygiene standard through to FSSC 22000 certification or opt to remain at the Basic Level. Participating companies can benefit by promoting their involvement in the Safe Serve Hygiene programme on their menus or promotional material. We believe that an increase in awareness of food safety will increase food safety standards and also benefit the tourism industry.
