Gap Analysis Assessment -This is one of the first steps in your Quality Management System (QMS) transition or implementation project is to compare your organization to the requirements of the ISO 9001:2000 standard. This is generally performed by the consultant during one of the initial visits to your facility.

The purpose of this audit is through the use of a checklist an auditor will compare the organization and then determine the "gaps" between your organization and the requirements of the ISO 9001:2000 standard. When the audit has been completed, the auditor will meet with top management to summarize the assessment results. These results can be transferred to a task lists for the implementation schedule.

Pre-Assessment Audit - A pre-assessment audit is a complete audit of the quality system to determine readiness for a third party registration audit by a registrar. A pre-assessment audit is followed by a meeting reporting the results to the organizations top management. Any nonconformance’s to the requirements of the ISO 9001:2000 standard and to the organization’s documentation is reviewed. A pre-assessment audit includes a consultation on how to correct nonconformance’s found during the audit.
