FSSC 22000

Food Safety System Certification

Standard brief

FSSC 22000 is a Food Safety Management System (FSMS) Certification Scheme. FSSC 22000 certification is granted when you have implemented FSSC 22000 in your company and a third-party auditor has audited your system to verify that you comply with the requirements of the FSSC 22000 standard. The FSSC 22000 System was designed to provide companies in the food industry with an ISO-based food safety management system certification that is recognized by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI). Recognition by GFSI provides worldwide recognition and acceptance by food manufacturers and retailers. FSSC 22000 defines requirements for integrated processes that work together to control and minimize food safety hazards. FSSC 22000 is a fast growing certification scheme and in April of 2017 issued their 15,000th certificate. Once a facility implements processes that address all the requirements of FSSC 22000, they can be certified to FSSC 22000. The certification program is managed by the Foundation for Food Safety Certification.
