Prepare For ISO 14001 Certification
To be registered to the ISO 14001 standard, your company must be audited by an external certification body. Before that takes place, you want to do everything necessary to ensure you are prepared. Whether you have a management system in place or are just developing one, understanding the requirements and having an experienced consultant by your side is key.
SimpleQuE believes in a simple, customized approach that begins with a gap analysis, then defines an action plan to prepare you for certification, and more importantly, a maintainable management system. SimpleQuE’s consultants will work with you, using our collective experience and expertise along with tools and processes to prepare you for the certification process.
Our Gap Analysis identifies what needs to be implemented or changed based on the extent to which a company already complies with its current systems. The gap assessment then serves as an action plan, listing each task to be completed. A valuable project management tool, it allows the company to assess its own timing expectations based on the resources available. The gap analysis can also serve as a pre-assessment tool or readiness audit, enabling our ISO 14001 consultants to coach and consult when problems are found.
Our Auditors can conduct a full ISO 14001 audit, evaluating every aspect of your business: every function, every process, every product or service. SimpleQuE’s team of experts has experience from all sides, including ISO auditing for certification bodies to prepare you for your eventual ISO 14001 certification audit.
