ISO 22000 to FSSC 22000

Transition from ISO to FSSC

Over 45,000 food organizations worldwide have been ISO 22000 certified, and at Foundation FSSC, we understand why. It is a science-based, trustworthy standard developed by international experts. The FSSC 22000 Scheme is founded on ISO standards and, just like ISO 22000, focuses on continuously improving a Food Safety Management System.

ISO 22000 is a Food Safety Management System standard that covers the HACCP principles according to the Codex Alimentarius. But FSSC 22000 has two main additional benefits compared to the ISO 22000 standard. The Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) has recognized the FSSC 22000 Scheme through its annual benchmarking process, which results in more business opportunities for FSSC 22000 certified organizations in national and international markets. And secondly, FSSC 22000 has a robust integrity program that assures the delivery of trust within the consumer goods industry.
