ISO 22000 FSMS

FSMS certificate demonstrates that food safety system has been assessed against a best practice standard and found compliant. The certificate issued by an independent certification body, gives the confidence to the customer / consumer that food safety has been implemented and assured.

FSMS is a prevention-based food safety system. It provides a systematic pro-active method for identifying and analyzing the hazards associated with the food processing and determines the method to handle critical control points to prevent unsafe food from reaching the consumer.

FSMS, together with Good Hygiene Practices and Good Manufacturing Practices, form the food safety elements which provide the methods to ensure safe food. Good Hygiene Practices considers all the inputs like raw materials, processes, equipments and personnel involved in conversion from input to output.

It is recommended to combine Food Safety elements with Quality Management System elements for a efficient Food Safety Management System. An efficient Quality Management System ensures that everyone is aware of responsibilities in managing the processes.
