FSSC-ISO 22000: Version 5

Duration: 1 day, Cost: $689.00 + GST per person

Course overview

FSSC 22000 is used by organisations that need to demonstrate their ability to control food safety hazards in order to meet customer requirements. It combines food safety management system requirements of ISO 22000 with additional pre-requisite programme requirements of both ISO/TS 22002-1 and the FSSC scheme. This scheme has been benchmarked by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) which recognises the equivalence of the core requirements of a number of food safety management systems, including FSSC 22000, BRC, SQF, and IFS. Food manufacturers that already have ISO 22000 certification need only add the ISO/TS 22002-1 and FSSC scheme requirements to their current programme to be ready for a FSSC 22000 certification audit. It enables trainees to refine their understanding of ISO 22000 requirements in relation to HACCP prior to the certification audit. ISO 22000 has been updated from the 2005 version to the 2018 version. This course helps participants transition to or implement FSSC Version 5.
