FSSC 22000

Food manufacturers supplying, or planning to supply products to major retailers or the major branded food companies will benefit from FSSC 22000 certification.

FSSC 22000 Food Safety System Certification covers the key requirements of many existing food safety standards and programs including: GMP, HACCP, SQF, BRC, IFS and GlobalGAP. FSSC 22000 is the most comprehensive food safety management system standard because it fully incorporates ISO 22000, sector specific prerequisite programs (PRPs) such as ISO/TS 22002-1 and ISO/TS 22002 , HACCP and the application steps of CODEX.

The FSSC 22000 standard is recognized by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI). This allows your organization to use the FSSC 22000 standard to meet the requirements of several global retailers or major branded food companies under a single, internationally recognized food safety management system.

Food manufacturers already certified against ISO 22000 have a good grounding and will to need add the additional requirements in order to meet the FSSC 22000 standard. Contracting our experienced auditors can help your organization to simplify its certifications. If your organization holds any of the existing food safety programs discussed here we can help you build on that and make a seamless transition to FSSC 22000 certification.

FSSC 22000 can be applied to organizations of any size or complexity in food manufacturing. It does not matter whether they are for profit or not, nor whether they are public or private companies. This includes manufacturers of:

  • Perishable animal products
  • Perishable vegetables
  • Products with a long shelf life at ambient temperature
  • Food ingredients, excluding technical and technological aids

In July 2011, the certification scope of FSSC 22000 was extended to include packaging material manufacturing following the publication of PAS 223 (now ISO/TS 22002-4) – prerequisite programs and design requirements for food safety in the manufacture and provision of food packaging. This standard covers four packaging sectors: plastic, paper and board, metal and glass.
