AIM

Develop effective food safety
management systems through a systematic
continuous improvement process.

OBJECTIVES

Provide a route towards accredited certification for companies who lack of have underdeveloped food safety systems

 

How to get started

 

Self-Assessment

Basic

An unaccredited assessment of a buisness is carried out against the Basic Level Checklist. The basic level requirements cover food safety systems, good manufacturing or agricultural practices and control of food hazards. Recommended validity of the basic level assessment is 12 months before continuous improvement to the Intermediate level.


Intermediate

An unaccrediated assessment of a business is carried out against the Intermediate Level Checklist. The basic level requirements cover food safety systems, good manufacturing or agricultural practices and control of food hazards. Recommended validity of the basic level assessment is 12 months before continuous improvement to a GFSI-recognised certification.

 


 

GFSI-Recognised Certification

The Global Markets Programme is a pathway to certification. After successfully going through the levels of the Programme, an operation has built up their food safety capability and systems and are ready to apply for certification with a GFSI-recognised certification programme (CPO) [SVP mettre un hyperlink vers la page Recognised CPOs).

Certification to a GFSI-recognised certification programme is achieved through a successful third-party audit against any of the certification programmes that have been recognised by the Global Food Safety Initiative.
