FSSC 22000 is a GFSI recognised food safety certification scheme that creates a framework for food safety management, total supply chain management, and control of food safety hazards.
Globally Accepted Standard
Simple Transition from ISO 22000
What Is It?
Developed through extensive and open consultation with many global stakeholders, the FSSC 22000 scheme uses international and independent standards such as ISO 22000, ISO 9001, ISO/TS 22003, and technical specifications for sector-specific Pre-Requisite Programs (PRPs), such as ISO/TS 22002-1. Alongside these standards, the Scheme contains FSSC Additional Requirements.
For organisations wishing to integrate their food quality management system into the scope of their certification, FSSC 22000-Quality certification is available which consists of a combined FSSC 22000 and a full ISO 9001 audit.
