Professional certifications in the field of food safety - FSSC 22000 with Bureau Veritas
The standard FSSC 22000 (Food Safety System Certification) defines the requirements for a certifiable management system for food safety of a company. It combines the requirements of ISO 22000 with preventive programmes consisting of a series of technical specifications as well as regulations on transport and storage. Additional, specific requirements are also included.
NEWS: REMOTE AUDITS IN TIMES OF THE CORONA PANDEMIC
The corona crisis is currently causing great uncertainty among many companies. Especially now, it is essential to maintain business activities in the best possible way while prioritizing the safety and health of staff and customers. This makes it all the more essential to consistently adhere to rules, regulations and standards - these are often required not only by law from the government, but also from business partners by contract. Bureau Veritas audit solutions help you maintain your certification on time. You can find all relevant information here: Remote Audits
REVISION OF FSSC 22000 - WHAT YOU SHOULD CONSIDER
A new edition of FSSC 22000 will be published in May 2019. The international standard for food and feed safety, recognised by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI), is based on ISO standards and aims to ensure comprehensive quality management along the food chain worldwide.
The updated version 5 officially comes into force on 01 January 2020; from 30 June 2020 the validity of all certifications carried out in accordance with requirement 4.1 will subsequently expire. We recommend that you have an update audit carried out at an early stage.
WHAT CHANGES WILL OCCUR IN THE COURSE OF THE NEW PUBLICATION?
As the international standard ISO 22000 forms the basis for FSSC 22000, the introduction of ISO 22000:2018 will also require a revision of FSSC 22000. As has already been done for the standards ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:20015, the so-called "High Level Structure" (HLS) will now also be introduced for FSSC 22000. This allows an uncomplicated integration with other management systems and streamlines the relevant administrative processes.
The risk-based approach is the focus of all the standards mentioned. This involves considering risks that could potentially have a negative impact on the management system in achieving its objectives, both system-related and operational (HACCP). The new version of FSSC 22000 therefore includes two interlocking plan-do-act cycles for the system and HACCP levels.
