Conducting the EMS Gap Analysis

Objectives

This is a controlled document DO NOT reproduce or distribute. Draft 2008 PPI 1


The ISO 14001 Standard is internationally recognized and used by industry and government organizations to enhance environmental and operational effectiveness, efficiency,
and performance. Conducting an EMS gap analysis is a key step in developing and implementing an ISO 14001 EMS. The objectives of this step include:

Assisting select Areas and facilities in determining how their environmental management system compares to the 17 elements of the ISO 14001 EMS Standard, and

Improving EMS assessment tools and guidance to ensure practicality and compliance with environmental requirements and other relevant requirements.

Gap Analysis Background


The EMS gap analysis is a self-evaluation. A series of questions will help you compare your organizations current environmental management practices against the ISO 14001
Standard. This comparison provides a baseline assessment of your organization and helps you to identify current systems in place for managing environmental issues, including
existing policies and procedures, roles and responsibilities, communication systems, training programs and others. As you conduct the analysis, you will recognize strengths and
weaknesses of your organizations present environmental operations and determine the extent to which your operations conform to the ISO 14001 EMS Standard.

Upon completion of the analysis, you should be able to identify which of the 17 EMS elements are already in place and which you need to develop or further refine. Conducting
the gap analysis will also help familiarize you with the ISO 14001 EMS Standard and the elements critical to developing, implementing, checking, and improving the EMS on a
continual basis.

Gap Analysis Questionnaire Description and Directions


The EMS Gap Analysis Questionnaire is a tool to help you conduct an EMS gap analysis assessment on your organization. When undertaking this assessment, include people
who have direct knowledge of as many environmental and operational functions as possible. This is important so that several employees gain exposure to the EMS process and
also because each employee brings specific knowledge about environmental practices from his or her functional area.

The questionnaire first asks for basic organizational information and background information about the respondent who will be completing the survey such as name, title, roles
and responsibilities, and telephone number.

The bulk of the questionnaire addresses the ISO 14001 requirements. There are 17 short sections of questions that correspond to the 17 EMS elements. The 17 sections fall
under the five main EMS categories of environmental policy; planning; implementation and operations; corrective action; and management review. Each of the sections are
labeled with the EMS element number so you can easily reference additional information about the 17 elements of the Standard.

This is a controlled document DO NOT reproduce or distribute. Draft 2008 PPI 2


There are three check boxes to the right of each of the questions on the Gap Analysis Questionnaire. After you respond to each question, place an "X" or a check in the block that
best describes the status of the component as it relates to your EMS. The status blocks in the gap analysis tool are represented as follows:

Status
Not in place Partially in place In Place
X

A numerical rating measuring your organizations conformance to the ISO 14001 Standard is determined from the responses on this questionnaire. A numerical rating is given
for each component response as follows:

Not in place = 0 points Partially in place = 1 point In place = 2 points

The responses are totaled for the entire questionnaire resulting in your score. The highest score possible, 172, indicates all components of the 17 elements are In place in your
EMS (85 questions/components x 2 points for each component In place = 170 points). This baseline assessment enables you to focus on continual improvement. In the
electronic version of the EMS Gap Analysis Questionnaire provided with the EMS Toolkit, the second tab titled "Summary Chart", contains a bar chart to give you a visual
depiction of the degree to which you conform to the ISO 14001 EMS Standard. This chart can be used in management presentations to show the progress of your EMS
implementation.

Hints
1) List of Required Documentation and Records: The ISO 14001 EMS Standard requires physical (or electronic) evidence of certain documents and records. This includes,
for example, the organization's environmental policy. There is a list at the end of this gap analysis questionnaire that highlights which items require physical (or electronic)
evidence in the form of documentation or records. The list is organized by each of the 17 elements in the Standard. Elements of the ISO 14001 EMS Standard that require
documentation are indicated in bold text in the gap analysis questionnaire for easy reference to the requirements of the Standard.

2) List of Reference Material: The second part of the list at the end of this gap analysis questionnaire is a list of reference materials you may already possess that could help
you identify your current EMS status. This list is organized by each of the 17 elements of the Standard.
