Implementation of a Food Safety Management System based on FSSC 22000 for Food Packaging (FS24)

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 recognised 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. It requires that the organisation implement prerequisite programs and HACCP.

FSSC 22000 is based on:

  • ISO 22000 Food Safety Management Systems (Requirements for any organisation 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 packaging manufacturing environment. The changes from the previous version to the current version will be covered in detail.
