FSSC 22000 Certification

TUV USA offers FSSC 22000 - Food Safety System Certification for producers of food and food packaging materials to help ensure the safety of the supply. This certification was developed by the Foundation for Food Safety Certification as an internationally uniform certification system for the food industry as a way to help create cross-border harmonisation of the food certification systems.

This standard is based on DIN EN ISO 22000 and the technical specifications for specific preventative programs for food safety. It is promoted by the Confederation of the Food and Drink Industries (CIAA) of the European Union and, unlike DIN EN ISO 22000, it is recognized by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI).

This standard is suitable for companies that produce, process, or package animal or vegetable products, or other food stuffs and additives. Prerequisites for this certification are the introduction of a quality management system for food safety and observance of Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) and Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP). With successful certification, these companies can provide objective evidence to their trading partners that they have implemented an audited management system for food safety.
