ISO 14001 Gap Analysis
Getting to where you want to be
Using pragmatic business-focused methodologies, Teamwork provides ISO 14001 Gap Analysis services to assist clients, partners and their customers to compare their current systems and processes against recognised best practice as a first step to achieving certification to ISO 14001. Analysis is based on interviews with key members of your organisation to establish your current position in relation to the required standard(s).
Clear identification of issues
ISO 14001 Gap Interviews
Teamwork’s high level ISO 14001 Environmental Management System (EMS) Gap Analysis compares existing core processes, practices and documentation with the requirements of the ISO 14001 standard, and other ISO standards if applicable. It identifies where the organisation meets requirements of ISO 14001 and where there are gaps. We then give recommendations on resources and actions needed to fill these gaps as well as the timescales necessary to achieve ISO 14001 certification.
Reviewing your Documentation
ISO 14001 Documentation
During the ISO 14001 EMS Gap Analysis, a high level review of your existing environmental management system documentation is carried out to establish whether or not it is appropriate and reflects current practice. Any changes required to support improvements in line with best practice and the requirements of the ISO 14001 standard are identified.
Facts and recommendations
ISO 14001 Gap Analysis Results
Once we have completed the ISO 14001 Gap Analysis we prepare a detailed report and present the results to your senior management team. The report will clearly identify where you are meeting the requirements. It will also pinpoint gaps, with recommendations on the actions you need to take to fill them and a realistic timescale in which ISO 14001 certification can be achieved.
How long, how much effort?
ISO 14001 Gap to Implementation
Teamwork will prepare a comprehensive project plan covering the subsequent stages of the ISO 14001 implementation programme. This will include details of project actions, ownership and timescales, and will form part of a Continuous Improvement Plan (CIP). This would be maintained up to and beyond ISO 14001 assessment and would be continually updated and developed as a business management tool.
