Initial environmental analysis

At what stage is the initial environmental analysis done? Is it the first step we need to take? What should we include within this analysis? If I do the initial environmental analysis do I have to do the manual of the environmental management system as well?

Attention, there is no requirement in ISO 14001:2015 making it mandatory to write a manual about the environmental management system. Please check this article Checklist of Mandatory Documentation Required by ISO 14001:2015 - https://info.advisera.com/14001academy/free-download/checklist-of-mandatory-documentation-required-by-iso-140012015

I start with the gap analysis. Until some years, after the gap analysis, I used to perform the initial environmental analysis to get a clear picture of all the aspects and impacts and to know where their source is. Then, I realized that before that it is better to do a rough environmental compliance evaluation to determine situations of noncompliance that take time to correct and need investment. Changes in the wastewater treatment facility, changes in chimneys. After that, I perform the initial environmental analysis to locate all aspects, impacts, and sources.
