Latest risk based certification approach - more than just a certificate
Taking certification to the next level, our audit methodology allows you to demonstrate compliance to the chosen standard while building sustainable business performance over time.
The first step is to UNDERSTAND your organisation and its context. This includes to identify your long-term business targets, the most relevant stakeholders (interested parties), both internal and external, that make demands on your management system and your most critical risks preventing you from reaching your long-term business target.
You should also to consider which risks could prevent you from reaching each of the long-term business targets and which your management system could help you manage. Based upon this, at the opening meeting you and your auditor are now better positioned to discuss and PRIORITIZE your most critical risks and where to focus the audit.
The focus areas should reflect your long-term business targets, and thus what matters the most to your organization and business objectives. Together you will DEFINE 1-3 focus area(s) for at the audit.
