What is the ISO 45001 Transition Assessment?



All Exemplar Global certified OHS 4801/18001 auditors who do not also hold an ISO 45001 OHS auditor certification are required to transition to the ISO 45001 OHS auditor scheme prior to March 2021. This is required because the OHS 4801/18001 auditor certification scheme was built on OHSAS 18001, a British standard that has been withdrawn and replaced by ISO 45001.

Organizations that are certified to OHSAS 18001 must transition to ISO 45001 by March 2021 if they want to maintain their OHS certification.

We are no longer accepting applications to the OHS 4801/18001 auditor certification scheme. Instead, please apply to the ISO 45001 OHS auditor scheme.

NOTE: Auditors who conduct audits to AS/NZS 4801 may do so with the Exemplar Global ISO 45001 OHS auditor certification. 

If you currently hold an Exemplar Global OHS 4801/18001 certification, all you need to do is to complete the ISO 45001 Transition Assessment through ONE of the following paths by March 2021:
  • Complete the ISO 45001 Transition Assessment through Exemplar Global (via your online portal)
  • Complete an ISO 45001 training course through an Exemplar Global certified training provider
  • Complete ISO 45001 training from an accredited certification body (or registrar) or registered training provider

If in the event you have met either of the above, please forward your training certificate to  

Exemplar Global will then transition you to the ISO 45001 certification program and will transfer all your OHS: Dates/ Grade/ Scopes across to the ISO 45001 OHS certification program and your current OHS certification will be closed out.

Once your application has been transferred, you will be notified to retrieve your e-certificate via your online portal and a new ISO 45001 ID card will be posted to you.
