In December 2016, FSSC 22000 launched version 4 of its international food safety management system certification scheme following a 14-month consultation process with industry, certification bodies, accreditation bodies, training organizations and governments. Following this, FSSC 22000 launched version 4.1 in July 2017, which reflects several developments in the market that have emerged since version 4 was launched.
The new version aims to make the GFSI-recognized standard more rigorous and consistent, primarily through the introduction of unannounced audits and a new focus on food fraud prevention. In this guide, we give an overview of the new and changed requirements to help you prepare for transition to the new standard or to achieve FSSC 22000 certification for the first time.
