What is Gap Analysis?

A Gap Analysis is a review of your Quality/Food Safety/OHS/Environmental Management System prior to a Certification Audit being undertaken to identify any “gaps” in the relevant Management System which would prevent/delay Certification being approved for your Organisation.

How does it benefit my business?

The results of a self-assessment provide companies with a measured rating of their existing systems. It indicates how you can improve your business processes. It also provides an indication of your preparedness for Third-Party Certification prior to the resource investment required for full certification.

How long does an analysis take and validity period?

There is no clear indication of time as it relates to the effort and amount of work required to gain positive responses to the assessment. A GAP analysis is not an assessment with a ‘valid to’ expiry date. The timeframe between Gap Analysis and Certification Audit is, under normal circumstances, three months.
