The adoption of a food safety management system (FSMS) is a strategic decision that can help to improve the overall performance in food safety. FSSC 22000 Version 6 is a GFSI-benchmarked standard and provides a comprehensive approach to food safety management. It combines the ISO 22000 food safety management standard with the relevant technical standards (ISO/TS 22002) and FSSC 22000 Version 6 additional requirements.

The course includes an in-depth review of requirements relating to leadership, hazard analysis, change management, PDCA-approach, risks and opportunities and other management system requirements.
