What is the difference between ISO 22000 and FSSC 22000?

  • ISO 22000 is not recognized by GFSI. (what is GFSI?)
  • ISO 22000 is broad in scope.
  • FSSC 22000 is recognized by GFSI.
  • FSSC has a more limited scope. Current scopes included are: farming, perishable animal products, food processing, feed production, food ingredients and food packaging material manufacturing.
Most companies will benefit by choosing FSSC 22000 and achieving a GFSI recognized certification. This is because many companies require that their suppliers be certified to a GFSI recognized standard. ISO 22000 is not recognized by GFSI.
 
FSSC 22000 is similar to ISO 22000 in that the FSSC 22000 scheme uses ISO 22000 as the requirements for the management system. However, FSSC 22000 includes additional requirements.
