What is a Gap Assessment?

A transition gap assessment is a pre-assessment where we take a closer look at your transition plan and environmental management system comparing it with the requirements of ISO 9001:2015 & ISO 14001:2015.

BSI will actively work with you to understand your planned approach to the transition and monitor your progress.

When you have reviewed and implemented the new requirements, you’ll need to advise us that you are ready for your transition audit.
