What is FSSC 22000
The FSSC 22000 Scheme is a robust, ISO-based, internationally recognized certification scheme for auditing and certification of food safety for organizations in the food supply chain, regardless of size and complexity. This scheme, developed by Foundation FSSC, sets out requirements to develop, implement and operate a food safety management system. FSSC 22000 audit requirements are based on the existing standard ISO 22000:2018, relevant prerequisite programs (PRPs), technical specifications, and the FSSC Additional requirements.
Since February 2010 the FSSC 22000 Scheme has been recognized by GFSI (Global Food Safety Initiative) and since March 2021 has been endorsed as a sub-scope of the IAF MLA (International Accreditation Forum Multilateral Recognition Arrangement).
