FSSC provides trust and delivers impact to the consumer goods industry

Since 2009, we have been growing towards our current position of the leading global certification Scheme owner. Our vision is to contribute to creating a better world through our ISO Management System-aligned certification schemes for the consumer goods industry and its related supply chain.

Food Safety

FSSC 22000 offers a certification Scheme for the auditing and certification of Food Safety Management Systems to ensure the provision of safe food, feed, and packaging to the consumer goods industry.

FSSC 22000 certification comprises of three components: ISO 22000, the relevant PRP specification/s (ISO/TS standards and BSI PAS), and the FSSC Additional Requirements. These requirements must be considered alongside the documents available for download. In the case of translations of the FSSC Scheme documents (including the annexes and main changes documents), the English version is the official and binding version.
