“Reintroducing FSSC 22000” – Register Now!
In this webinar US representative Jacqueline Southee will re-introduce you to FSSC 22000 and explain what it means to be a certification program “based on ISO 22000, ISO 22003, sector specific technical specifications for Prerequisite Programs (PRPs) and additional Scheme requirements”.
She will review the additional requirements that are included in Version 4.1 and how the revision of the scheme has allowed the inclusion of the new scopes to extend certification to cover more sectors of the supply chain adding Storage and Transport, Catering and Retail to the original scopes of Manufacturing Human Food, Packaging Materials, Animal Feed and Primary Production.
Finally, with the regulatory demands of FSMA having impact on companies all over the world, Jacqueline will explain how the revision of FSSC 22000 to 4.1 has closed some of the gaps between the certification program and the legislative requirements, and how a newly published FSSC 22000 addendum can help improve transparency within the supply chain as well meeting the needs of the international industrial sector in providing the information required for supplier verification.
Jacqueline Southee is the North American representative for FSSC 22000, the globally recognized GFSI benchmarked food safety certification system. Based in Washington DC, Jacqueline works to build a broader understanding of how accredited FSSC 22000 certification can contribute to global harmonization in food safety, forge international compliance and meet the needs of the public and private sector.
