The Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) is opening a new stakeholder consultation. The latest programme owner to have reached this key step in the GFSI benchmarking process is Food Safety System Certification 22000 (FSSC 22000).
FSSC 22000 was launched in 2009 as a certification programme for food safety management systems for numerous scopes, founded on existing ISO-based standards for food safety certification (i.e. ISO 22000, ISO/TS 22003 and ISO/TS22002 technical specifications for sector PRPs). The certification is accredited under the standard ISO/IEC 17021-1. FSSC 22000's mission is to be the leading independent, non-profit, ISO-based food safety certification programme in the global supply chain.
Foundation FSSC 22000 is the legal owner of the FSSC 22000 certification programme and also manages it through its board. The organisational structure of Foundation FSSC 22000 is available here.
Why a Consultation?
Open stakeholder consultations are an important step in this process to ensure the greatest transparency and objectivity, and are conducted after the desktop self-assessment review led by an independent benchmark leader.
