I was contacted by SCA Wood UK Ltd as they required help with the company’s transition to the ISO 14001 & ISO 9001 Management System Standards 2015 update. We quickly decided that a gap analysis to compare the company’s current Integrated Management System to the requirements of the new standards was a logical first step. The company’s main site in Stoke-on-Trent hosts a number of processing facilities and also storage for both raw materials and finished goods which being a natural product, have specific preservation requirements. The gap analysis in the form of an internal systems audit was carried out by myself and a report duly generated. From this initial assessment it became clear what adjustments were required to meet the new requirements and an action plan was quickly put in place by SCA. The result was an on time, successful audit and subsequent certification, by their accredited certification body.
