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, PAS 220 PRPs, 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 will only need a review of 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.
