ISO AUDITINGAND GAP ANALYSIS
A Gap Analysis Audit involves the comparison of your organisation’s current conformance to the Standard, with potential performance. A Gap Analysis Audit is also a cost-efficient alternative to a full Audit.
A Gap Analysis (First Party) Audit is the most effective method to determine your organisation’s current conformance to an ISO Standard and respective legal requirements.
This Audit, guided by our WWISE Consultants will assist your organisation to effectively sift “gaps” identified. Through analysis of these gaps and their cause, WWISE provides expert advice on business solutions.
The costs associated with an audit is R 9250-00 (excluding VAT and travel costs, if the Client is located outside of Gauteng). 1 Man Day Audit can audit up to 4 processes or 8 employees in an 8-hour day including the ISO Management System.
Should your organisation have more than 4 processes, an additional day or Auditor may be required. This is determined by organisational size, complexity of the organisationʼs processes, legal requirements, and required Standards.
To quote effectively for a Gap Analysis, Audit WWISE requires the following information:
- Scope of the organisation, including the ISO Standard required to be audited against.
- Legal requirements (Register), if applicable.
- Number of departments.
- Number of processes in each department (e.g. HR – 3 processes: Recruitment, Leave, Industrial Relations).
- Number of employees per process and department.
A Gap Analysis Audit proposal with a quotation will be sent once the required information is gathered from the organisation. A 50% deposit is required for WWISE to secure dates for the Audit, with the balance to be paid after the Audit is complete. Upon completion, you will receive an Audit Report, as well as a project implementation proposal to remediate the gaps identified.
WWISE has a pool of professional experts who conduct Internal Audits based on the requirements of the requested ISO Standard. Upon completion of the Audit, we provide a full report on the gaps or non-conformances identified. WWISE also assists in identifying corrective actions to close out the gaps or non-conformances.
Second Party (Supplier) Audits
WWISE DOES NOT CONDUCT CERTIFICATION AUDITS
Certification Audits are conducted by Certification Bodies, and function as an external validation that your organisation’s Management System meets the requirements of the Standard. While we do not conduct Certification Audits, WWISE has assisted the South African Bureau of Standards (SABS), TUV Nord, and Bureau Veritas on various ISO Standards globally with their Third Party Certification Audits.
WWISE Consultants are sub-contracted by the SABS Certification Body to assist in evaluating the compliance and conformance to respective legislations and ISO Management System requirements.
Due to conflict of interest, WWISE does not audit any organisation that we have assisted in implementation. Furthermore, we do not disclose any confidential or propriety information of clients audited on behalf of the Certification Bodies.
WWISE is contracted independently by Certification Bodies barring the fact that the client has not been consulted upon by WWISE for two years or longer.
We assist the Certification Bodies in auditing the following Standards:
Quality Management System
Environmental Management System
Occupational Health and Safety Management System
Energy Management System
Information Security Management System
Information Technology – Service Management System
Business Continuity Management System
Market, Opinion and Social Research, including Insights and Data Analytics
Food Safety Management System
