FSSC 22000 is used by organisations that need to demonstrate their ability to control food safety hazards in order to meet customer requirements. It combines food safety management system requirements of ISO 22000 with additional pre-requisite programme requirements of both ISO/TS 22002-1 and the FSSC scheme. This scheme has been benchmarked by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) which recognises the equivalence of the core requirements of a number of food safety management systems, including FSSC 22000, BRC, SQF, and IFS. This course provides trainees with an overview of Food Safety System Certification (FSSC) 22000, in order to implement and maintain certification.
This course helps participants transition to or implement FSSC 22000 Version 5.1.
