Optional Gap Analysis

RIQC can provide an optional Gap Analysis tailored to your requirements in order to determine the readiness of your management system for certification. This can save time and costs in the long term and help you make a more informed decision.

Stage 1 - Preparedness

An appraisal of the management system documentation will take place. This is to ensure compliance with the relevant standards, related statutory and regulatory aspects and to evaluate your location and site specific conditions. Stage 1 will also include discussions with your personnel to determine the preparedness for the Stage 2 audit.

Stage 2 - Evaluation

This is an in depth appraisal of your management system documentation & operational processes for compliance with the relevant standard(s). In addition, any product standards & statutory requirements for the declared scope of supply will be sampled for compliance. On completion of a satisfactory Stage 2 audit, you will be awarded an accredited Certificate of your chosen standard(s). Accredited certification of Integrated Management Systems is also available. 

Certification Achieved

Your company has passed Stage 1 & Stage 2 assessment and is issued with an accredited certificate from RIQC to prove it. We look forward to a value added partnership. This Certificate is valid for three years, subject to satisfactory maintenance of your management system.
