Self-assessment suite

Covering the most commonly used standards, our self-assessment suite lets you assess how well you know a specific standard and check the readiness of your management system. The scored assessment reveals where you may have gaps and improvements are needed. Create a baseline and benchmark different sites internally. Or set quantitative targets for a specific area and regularly measure progress made. Regardless of your need, the self-assessment provides detailed insight on your understanding or performance and degree of control.

The attached checklists help you prepare for an upcoming third-party external audit by DNV or guide your internal audit processes.
