The journey to certification
The first step to certification to the BSI HACCP-GMP Certification Criteria is to develop your food safety management system against the preliminary steps and principles of HACCP using the certification criteria as a guide to the level of detail required in your documented system for a range of food safety related activities. Once your food safety management system has been documented and implemented, you can use our free self-assessment checklist to determine if you are audit-ready. We can also conduct a gap audit to help identify and prioritize the issues that you'll need to address prior to a certification audit.
There are two levels of certification to the BSI HACCP-GMP Certification Criteria, allowing you to select from Essential and Excellence criteria.
- Organizations meeting essential criteria will be awarded a HACCP and GMP, HACCP or GMP certificate depending on the modules/clauses selected.
- Organizations that are able to demonstrate best-in-class practice may opt to include the "Excellence" criteria in their assessment which will result in an "Excellence in HACCP & GMP" or "Excellence in GMP" certificate being awarded.
Whether you're ready for the next step in best practice food safety management or you're more concerned about meeting the requirements of your customers or protecting consumers, certifying to the BSI HACCP and GMP Certification Criteria can drive meaningful change in your organization.
