Food Safety System Certification 22000 (FSSC 22000) is a robust, ISO-based, internationally accepted certification scheme for auditing and certification of food safety in the whole supply chain. FSSC 22000 uses the existing standards ISO 22000, ISO 22003 and technical specifications for sector PRPs, which were developed through a wide and open consultation with a large number of related organizations. ISO 22000 certified manufacturers can obtain full GFSI accepted FSSC 22000 certification by meeting the requirements of technical specifications for sector PRPs and the additional scheme requirements.
The internationally recognized standard ISO 22000 is applicable to all organizations, regardless of their size and complexity, who are directly or indirectly involved in the production of foodstuffs and who want to demonstrate their conformity to HACCP according to the Codex Alimentarius by way of an objective and competent assessment. The standard in particular addresses organizations that aim for a goal-oriented, coherent, and more integrated management system for food safety, above and beyond the usual legal requirements.
