Food safety is essential for the food industry and consumers alike. This is why the food industry is facing increasing demands to prove that it has food safety under control.

Having your company’s management system certified under an internationally recognised standard, such as ISO 22000, is a strong tool in this regard. Certification gives you hard proof that your company has food safety under control.

BENEFITS OF CERTIFICATION UNDER THE ISO 22000 STANDARD

There are many benefits to quality management certification in accordance with ISO 22000, including these:

  • The standard covers the entire chain from farm to table: from the production of food and feed through to packaging, drinking water, transportation, warehousing, and more.
  • ISO 22000 facilitates integrating management systems, such as for quality and the environment.
  • Common terminology ensures effective communication internally and externally, while reducing the risk of errors.
  • ISO 22000 is based on the principles of HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points), similar to legislation and self-monitoring in this area.

AUDITS THAT CREATE VALUE

Even if there is no demand for your company to achieve management system certification, having your system certified can still be a great investment. Certification offers you ongoing, independent oversight and input on how you can improve.

FORCE Certification offers a certification process that creates value, highlighting areas for improvement and critical areas where you can take action.

COMPLIANCE AND INSPECTION OF YOUR COMPANY’S OR YOUR SUPPLIER’S CONCEPTS

Do you need auditing for compliance with your suppliers’ or your own company’s concepts? FORCE Certification can help here, too.

We also offer a variety of industry-specific inspections, such as inspections for compliance with internal, customer-supplied, and vendor-supplied hygiene requirements.

FSSC 22000

If you are interested in certification under a GFSI-recognised (Global Food Safety Initia-tive) standard, you may choose certification according to FSSC 22000 instead of ISO 22000.
