For small businesses, the prospect of first-time ISO certification can be very daunting. When business owner/operators look into certification to a particular standard – or standards – they generally recognise the potential benefits very quickly, but there will inevitably be questions. ‘Can we afford it?’ ‘How long will it take?’ ‘How much resource will it use up?’ But perhaps the most commonplace: ‘Is our business ready?’
SGS United Kingdom Ltd can certainly talk through the process with you to help answer all these concerns and more, but for the question about readiness, we have a strategic diagnostic and measurement tool specifically designed to help you understand the performance of your systems against the requirements of certification standards. And at the moment, signing up for a gap analysis from SGS also gives you multiple financial benefits.
A gap analysis will help you decide how to make any adjustments to your business’s requirements, customised processes or management systems to meet the expected results. It will also enable you to prepare for certification or legal standards and ensure compliance. In addition, it will allow you to understand the performance of your systems against the established certification standard or requirement.
Having reviewed the business’s state of readiness, an SGS expert will put together a report which highlights any gaps in your business before you move forward with the certification process.
