Food safety standards: understanding the new FSSC 22000 update
Mar. 5 2019
Following the publication of the new ISO 22000: 2018 food safety management systems standard, the FSSC 22000 Foundation has announced an update to its own standard to ensure industry-wide alignment.
With food safety still high on the agenda for many organisations, FSSC (Food Safety System Certification) 22000 V5 will be published in May 2019. An upgrade process will then begin on 1st January 2020 for all certified organisations to maintain compliance with GFSI (Global Food Safety Initiative) requirements.
There are a number of implications for organisations which are certified to the FSSC 22000 standard. With an experienced team of certification professionals, Bureau Veritas can support you in identifying the changes and taking the necessary actions to meet new obligations.
