A professional Gap Analysis service to help you bridge the gap to the new standards
In recent years, ISO has released major updates of its key management system standards - such as ISO 9001 for Quality, ISO 14001 for Environment, and ISO 27001 for Information Security. There is also a new OHS standard currently at draft stage - ISO 45001. These new standards have a common structure and theme. They all emphasise taking a risk-based approach, and offer the opportunity of a more streamlined system. This is very much in line with the philosophy that Qudos has advocated for many years.
Any organization looking to be certified in the future will need to address the requirements of the new standards. Existing certifications to earlier standards must be updated within a 3 year period. The first step in developing or updating a system is to identify any gaps between what is currently in place, and the new requirements. This is known as a Gap Analysis. Qudos has successfully provided Gap Analysis services to a wide range of clients over many years. This service is now available to help your organization to bridge the gap to the new ISO standards. A qualified lead auditor will review your current management system and interview key personnel involved in relevant areas of your organization. Including:
Existing documents / methods of managing work processes
The requirements of the new standard in the context of your operations
The gaps between existing arrangements and those requirements
A strategy to eliminate those gaps and update the system with a process and risk management approach
A report will be provided with a detailed a gap analysis against the standard - together with possible options to address any gaps identified. This may be used as a dynamic tool in the development of your system.
A unique advantage of the Qudos Gap Analysis service is the inclusion of FREE membership to Qudos Club – the comprehensive online resource library for Quality, OHS, Environment, and Information Security management. This offers a powerful solution to updating your system.
