FSSC 22000 (Food Safety System)

Be familiarise with the skillset to conduct inhouse audits centred to FSSC 22000 compliance. The FSSC 22000 introduced is the latest sequence (Version 5 of global standard) that offers a comprehensive guideline to ensure the qualities of your Food Safety Management System are met for international exports, while allowing the integration opportunity with every other regulatory systems in the same process.

Food Safety System 22000

The FSSC 22000 certificate is a complete certification scheme for the auditing and certification of Food Safety Management Systems (FSMS).

The word, FSSC, is an abbreviation to Food Safety System Certification,  where the awarded FSSC 22000 license is managed by a private foundation of independent board of shareholders. This consists of a number of representatives across various sectors centred to the food industry.

Yet to ensure transparency across its work, and involvement within the quality assurance sector, an advisory committee will be appointed to make recommendations surrounding several topics, including technical aspects like unannounced audits & food fraud, guidance documents, and even scheme revisions.

This advisory personnel reports to the board found in FSSC 22000. 

FSSC 22000 Supporting Sectors

Every level of the food chain can be supported by FSSC 22000 certification, but for the purpose of illustration, this is further explained below:

Early Supply Chain Level: Farming

Animal Farming is the critical first supply chain step for many food products. When insufficiently controlled, food safety can cause major incidents and food scares, resulting in high consequences for human health and economic issues. By nature, animal farming poses significant food safety hazards. Especially microbiological hazards from pathogen micro-organism, but also risks from animal feed and medicines, shall be identified and controlled.

The sector is bound by many regulations, and there are a variety of elements in animal farming that must be considered. Therefore, an in-depth food safety hazard analysis must be conducted and implemented in an effective food safety management system.

FSSC 22000 provides a certification Scheme that incorporates an in-depth hazard analysis in a robust food safety management system to control the food safety hazards, minimise risks, and assure the animal farming activities. The Scheme uses international standards such as ISO 22000 for food safety management and ISO/TS 22002-3, the sector-specific Pre-Requisite Program (PRP) for food manufacturing alongside additional FSSC 22000 certification requirements. With these standards, FSSC 22000 ensures consistent, high-quality audits monitored by an integrity program to measure and maintain safe animal farming performance on an international scale.
