The standard is based on DIN EN ISO 22000 and the technical specifications for specific preventive programmes 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 recognised by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI). Prominent large corporations in the industry were the driving force behind its introduction. It is anticipated that further multinational food producers and their suppliers will also support the certification.
With a successful certification, companies can provide their trading partners with objective evidence that they have implemented an audited management system for food safety. The certification is aimed at companies of any size which produce, process or package animal or vegetable products or other foodstuffs and additives. The prerequisites 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).
Such a system can be introduced either by the company itself or with the help of a specialised consultant. Contact us and we will help you.
