Optional Gap Analysis
Performed by Best Practice, we evaluate your management system to each clause of the relevant standard. This will identify the level of compliance that your existing management system has.
Best Practice provides an assessment report outlining any faults in your management system that needs to be addressed prior to certification.
Stage 1 Assessment
The evaluation of your management system documentation, including policies, processes, management review records, scope and context as well as system implementation.
This sets the foundation for the stage two assessment.
Stage 2 Assessment
Best Practice needs to verify that the documented requirements of the standard are implemented across your business.
We visit your offices and premises as well as partake in discussions with relevant individuals in your business.
Your management system is assessed and verified as being implemented.
Once your stage two assessment is verified and the process is complete, a 'Statement of Certification' is issued, confirming compliance with the relevant standard.
This certification is valid for a three-year period from the date of issue.
Regular surveillance assessments will be performed at a minimum of once every 12 months to maintain your certification.
