In this interview, Remco Pieters – Technical Manager Food at LRQA and Aldin Hilbrands – Technical Director at FSSC 22000 have teamed up to talk about FSSC 22000 version 4’s most significant changes which are the introduction of three new scopes for the food sector, the inclusion of unannounced audits and a greater focus on preventing food fraud.
From January 1, 2018 certified organizations will be audited against the new version 4 requirements so 2017 will be a transition year. The updates in version 4 reflect significant input from the food sector as a whole; include the latest feedback from certification and accreditation bodies; are more aligned with Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) benchmarks and meet the growing expectations of governments.
