Free ISO 22000 Gap Analysis Audit Tool

Assists food companies in planning for food-safety management certification

Published: Wednesday, December 15, 2010 - 17:23

(Vinca LLC: Eden Prairie, MN) -- Quality systems professionals at Vinca LLC have outlined the steps to use in developing quality management systems with clients. The first step they recommend is to complete a thorough project plan.

An effective plan must begin with solid information about what must be done to bring a system into compliance with the standard. Performing a gap analysis audit that identifies the differences between the standards’ requirements and the processes in a facility is the best way to gather these data.

The audit is performed using the requirements of the standard as a checklist, and auditing the processes against them. The audits’ results will provide the needed information to plan a project and identify goals, resources needed, and timelines for completion.

Vinca LLC’s website 22000-tools.com offers ISO 22000 Gap Analysis Manager, a free tool to help companies as they begin to plan and conduct a gap analysis audit and includes:

• Step-by-step instructions

• Gap analysis plan form

• Gap analysis checklist template

• Tutorial presentation
