Implementation of FSSC 22000 for Food Safety Course (FS22)

FSSC 22000 is a Food Safety Management Systems standard which provides a framework for effectively managing food safety responsibilities for food handling enterprises. Unlike ISO 22000, FSSC 22000 is fully recognized by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) and is based on existing ISO Standards.

The standard has requirements for Food Safety Management System processes and procedures, and requires that the organization implement prerequisite programs and HACCP.

FSSC 22000 is based on:

  • ISO 22000 Food Safety Management Systems (Requirements for any organization in the food chain) AND
  • technical specifications for sector PRPs:
  1. for food manufactures and processors: ISO/TS 22001-1 Prerequisite programmes on food safety – Part 1: Food manufacturing OR
  2. for food packaging manufacturing: ISO/TS 22001-4 Prerequisite programmes on food safety – Part 4: Food packaging manufacturing.

This course provides a comprehensive understanding of the standard and how to implement it effectively in a food manufacturing and/or processing environment. The changes from the previous version to the current version will be covered in detail.
