FSSC 22000 food safety – internal audit checklists

Looking for a tool to efficiently manage your internal audits, in view of the FSSC 22000 food safety certification? You are in the right place!

Food safety compliance with the ISO-based FSSC 22000 system

After HACCP, the Food Safety System Certification FSSC 22000 is one of the newest schemes in the food industry. It is designed to ensure food safety from manufacturing to distribution and is managed by the Foundation FSSC 22000 and its 127 accredited certification bodies. This certification is recognized by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI), which provides worldwide recognition and acceptance by food manufacturers and retailers.

The FSSC system provides companies in the food supply chain with an ISO-based food safety management system. ISO-based means that it integrates nicely with other management systems, such as ISO 9001 for quality management and ISO 14001 for sustainability.

To prepare for ISO and FSSC 22000 certifications and prove you have an effective food safety system, you will need to conduct regular internal audits.
