Certification

Three steps to certification

  • Application – You will need to fill in an application form in order for Global Allied Partners (GAP) to understand your company and requirements. You can do this by completing either the online quick quote or the online formal quote request form. We will use this information  to accurately define the scope of assessment and provide you with a proposal for certification.
  • Assessment – Once you’ve agreed to our proposal, your assessments will be booked with a GAP Assessor. This assessment consists of two mandatory visits that form the Initial Certification Audit. Please note that you must be able to demonstrate your management system has been fully operational for a minimum of three months and has been subject to a management review and full cycle of internal audits. *Note: there may be additional requirements for some of the more technical standards – we will advise you of these
  • Certification – Following a successful two stage audit, a certification decision is made and if positive, then certification to the required standard is issued by an approved registrar. You will receive a hard and soft copy of the certification. Certification is valid for three years and is maintained through a programme of annual surveillance audits and a three yearly recertification audit.
