FSSC 22000 is a food safety certification standard. FSSC 22000 certified companies have successfully completed a certification audit by a third party auditor showing that their food safety system meets the requirements of the FSSC 22000 requirements.
FSSC 22000 requires that you design and document a Food Safety Management System (FSMS). The ISO 22000 and the ISO 22002-1 standard contain the specific requirements to be addressed by the FSMS.
The average time for implementation is approximately one year. Your timeframe may vary. We offer points to consider.

Our years of experience have resulted in a very effective method of implementation using a Team Approach.
We use one Team to lead the project, and call this the FSSC 22000 Steering Team. The function of the team is very important.
One of the first steps in your Food Safety Management System (FSMS) implementation project is to compare your current FSMS to the requirements of the FSSC 22000 Code. This is most commonly called a Gap Analysis.
