FSSC 22000 is a food safety certification scheme based on the existing internationally recognized standard ISO 22000 and complemented by technical standards, such as ISO TS 22002-1 for food manufacturing and ISO TS 22002-2 for packaging manufacturing.  

It specifically targets the food, feed and packaging manufacturing sector as well as the storage and distribution, catering and retail/wholesale sectors. In addition, it takes into consideration the Global Food Safety Initiative’s (GFSI) requirements. While the first editions of FSSC 22000 only applied to food manufacturers, the scope for version 5 has been extended to other segments of the supply chain.

How can FSSC 22000 improve your business?

FSSC 22000 provides:

  • A powerful management system framework fully integrated in the company’s overall management system. With version 5 it is also fully consistent with other standards, such as ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 (including the alignment with ISO High Level Structure).
  • A robust Hazard Analysis and Risk Management methodology based on HACCP principles and ability to improve food safety effectiveness and efficiency.
  • The use of the technical specification, such as ISO TS 22002-1 for food manufacturing, concerning the pre-requisite programmes, as requested by ISO 22000 8.2 and fitting the needs of customers along the supply chain for the due diligence and related issues.
