FSSC 22000 Food Safety System Certification is an internationally recognized standard, It is the combination of ISO 22000, PAS 220 and some additional requirements of FSSC, one major thing which makes it unique and distinguish it from other standard is that FSSC is also recognized by GFSI – Global food safety Initiative and many European chain of stores, FMCGs and food related businesses demand from their food chain suppliers to implement and get certified on FSSC 22000.
It also provides the best framework in setting up food safety management system where an organization in food chain needs to demonstrate its ability to identify & control the food safety hazards in order to ensure that food is safe for human consumption. It is a voluntary standard therefore it automatically fulfils the expectations of the customers and stakeholders regarding food safety management system. FSSC certification can help the organization to flourish in new markets.
FSSC and ISO 22000 are almost same, the only difference is that FSSC is recognized by GFSI, FSSC 22000 certificate is issued with an additional accreditation of GFSI. Most of the countries have formed their own accreditation bodies to authorize the certification bodies, Accreditation and certification bodies charge their fee against their services. Accredited certificate issued by any of accredited certification body is accepted worldwide.
After finalization of agreement with client, experts of Quality Systems visit at client’s premises and conduct the complete gap analysis of existing system against the FSSC 22000 standard and discuss the gap report to the management, identified gaps could be in documents, implementation, employee’s awareness, statutory and regulatory compliances.
