Food Safety Management System.

System description

Food Safety Management System

Food safety is a global issue not only due to its importance to the health of society but also due to its influence on international trade. Globalisation of food production and procurement makes supply chains longer and more complex thus increasing a risk of incidents related to food safety. Efficient and harmonized food safety systems must manage and ensure safety and usability of food in each link of the supply chain.

Certification of food safety management system (FSSC 22000) is a solid scheme of certification and auditing of management systems in the entire chain of supplies which is based on ISO standards and acknowledged by international environment. The FSSC 22000 certification is based on the valid ISO 22000, ISO 22003 standards and technical specifications for sector preliminary operational programmes (within the framework of the Enterprise Development Programme) which were developed with contribution of linked organisations. Producers certified according to the requirements of the ISO 22000 standard may obtain the FSSC 22000 certified which is fully recognizable by the GFSI (Global Food Safety Initiative) after fulfillment of requirements of technical specifications for sectoral preliminary programmes (Enterprise Development Programme) and other requirements.
