The FSSC 22000 standard is a complete certification scheme for Food Safety Systems based on existing standards for certification (ISO 22000, ISO 22003 and technical specifications for sector PRPs). Manufacturers that are already certified against ISO 22000 will only need an additional review against technical specifications for sector PRPs to meet this certification scheme.
In case you want to integrate quality in your management systems, FSSC 22000 Q-certification is available. FSSC 22000-Q consists of a combined FSSC 22000 and ISO 9001 certificate.
ISACert is recognised and accredited to provide FSSC 22000 certificates. ISACert auditors are experienced professionals and are specially selected because they are thoroughly familiar with the "best practices" in your industry.
The certificate for FSSC 22000 is issued for three years. The second and third year a surveillance audit is performed.

The FSSC22000 standard is developed for the certification of food safety systems of organizations in the food chain that process or manufacture animal products, perishable vegetal products, products with a long shelf life, (other) food ingredients like additives, vitamins and bio-cultures.
FSSC 22000 is especially beneficial for companies that are not subject to detailed specific requirements as under other GFSI-recognised certification standards. Also manufacturers having experience with ISO-certification can benefit a lot by choosing for FSSC 22000.
Whether you should use FSSC 22000 or another standard like BRC Food or IFS Food depends among others upon your customers’ requirements.
Certification according to the FSSC 22000 Food standard may be combined with other certification standards like IFS Food or BRC Food. For organizations wishing to integrate food quality management into the scope of their certification, FSSC 22000-Q certification has been available. FSSC 22000-Q consists of a combined FSSC 22000 and ISO 9001 certificate.
