Gap Analysis

A Gap Analysis is an assessment of your current system against the requirements of a particular management system standard. The gap analysis identifies areas where your system does not meet the requirements of a standard.

One of our experienced management system auditors will review your business’s current procedures against the requirements of the applicable relevant standard. WCS will then provide you with a Gap Analysis Report which will clearly identify all the gaps between your system and the requirements of the standard.


Once you have somewhat developed and implemented a management system you may find a Pre-Audit beneficial.

A Pre-Audit is an independent third party audit against a management system standard. Its basically a test run for a company looking to start the certification process. Once the Pre-Audit has been completed you will receive a report including any non conformance’s showing where your system does not meet the applicable requirements. A Pre-Audit is usually a shorter audit duration than that of a third party certification audit and very much based on limited sampling.
