FSSC 22000 version 4.1, launched July 2017, reflects several developments in the market that have emerged since version 4 published.

ISO-22000 was released more than a decade ago and was revised in 2018.  The 2018 revision has addressed the changing needs of users and is in alignment with ISO-9001:2015.

This half day course will provide a thorough introduction to the changes and will provide examples of best practice.

Course Introduction and Description

This course will focus on explaining the changes to FSSC 22000 and ISO-22000 and teach how to best achieve compliance to the updated standards.

The new version of FSSC 22000 aims to make the GFSI-recognized standard more rigorous and consistent, through the introduction of unannounced audits, food fraud prevention and FSMA readiness.  Since Version 4.1 was released in 2017, companies and auditors have a year to adapt to the new requirements.  This course will review the new requirements and show examples of best practice in the industry.

ISO 22000 is a standard developed by the International Organization for Standardization dealing with food safety. It is a general derivative of ISO 9001. The standard was established in 2015 and has grown to be a globally accepted standard applicable to all aspects of the supply chain.

The 2018 changes introduce two Plan-Do-Check-Act (PDCA) cycles instead of one.  One cycle addresses the food safety management system and the other covers the operational processes.  Risk-based thinking is addressed at both the operational and the HACCP level.

    • The changes outlined in FSSC 22000 version 4.1.
