New Scheme Applications

A scheme shall be considered to be a 'new scheme application' if the scheme has:

  • not previously undergone benchmarking by the GFSI,
  • been previously recognised by the GFSI, but has had its recognition withdrawn.

Find out more information on whether your scheme would be eligible for submission to GFSI here.

Application for Re-Benchmarking or Extension to a Scope of Recognition

Re-Benchmarking

A scheme shall be considered to be a 'Re-Benchmarking' application if the scheme is:

  • applying for a new scope of recognition,
  • seeking a change in extension within an existing recognised scope, which does not represent a significant change to the scheme governance or ownership, the management system or key elements.

Extension of Scope

A scheme shall be considered to be an 'Extension to a Scope of Recognition ' application if the scheme:

  • has had significant change to the scheme governance or ownership, the management system or key elements, or
  • a scheme will anyway be benchmarked on the 4 year anniversary of its original recognition or
  • there has been a change in the Guidance Document within the four year revision cycle, or
  • there has been a suspension of recognition by GFSI

Benchmarking Process

All details can be found in the GFSI Guidance Document.

    As food safety professionals and scientists, we often are preoccupied checking equipment, reviewing lab stats and talking to suppliers and staff, and fail to share both our stories and successes. The same is true on an industry level with GFSI in Washington, D.C. and state capitals where casual reference to GFSI in the marketplace often triggers a blank stare among government regulators and legislators, who are similarly talking to one another in their own silo-ed conversations. But, that’s changing.
