What are 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.


When are Gap Assessments conducted?

Gap assessments are often conducted prior to implementation to gauge the amount of work involved, to prepare a budget and a project plan before getting started.


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.
