 FSSC 22000 VERSION 5 – THE MAIN CHANGES AND THEIR BACKGROUND

In May 2019, a new edition of FSSC 22000 will be published. One big reason for the revision is the publication of the standard ISO 22000: 2018 last summer, which is used as a basis for the GFSI benchmarked certification scheme. The new version includes mainly structural changes that we will present in this article.

First, we want to give you a quick overview of the FSSC 22000 framework. The standard consists of three components: ISO 22000, PRPs and the additional FSSC 22000 requirements. The international standard ISO 22000 forms the basis for FSSC 22000 and outlines the requirements for management, for internal and external communication and points out the continuous improvement approach. This is the reason why the revision of ISO 22000 has such a big impact on FSSC 22000. The sector specific PRPs (Pre-Requisite-Program) makes sure that FSSC 22000 is applicable for (nearly) all companies in the supply chain. The additional FSSC 22000 requirements ensure consistency and integrity and regularize the administration and management of FSSC 22000.

Moreover, there is an optional quality management module, which includes all the integrable elements of ISO 9001 into the FSSC 22000 certification. This way it is possible to combine a Food Safety Management Certification with a Quality Management Certification.

FSSC 22000 is applicable for the following branches: food manufacturing, food packaging manufacturing, animal feed production, farming and newly also transport and storage, catering and retail and wholesale. GFSI benchmark is valid for food manufacturing (C), animal feed production (D), transport and storage (G), food packaging manufacturing (I) and bio chemicals (K).

Changes in version 5

ISO 22000 is a cornerstone for FSSC 22000 – therefore it’s not surprising that all important changes in FSSC version 5 correspond with the changes in ISO 22000. For the sake of completeness, we will describe changes again but you can also consult our article regarding the changes on ISO 22000.

The new version adopts the so-called High-Level Structure (HLS), the common structure for all new management system standards. The adoption of a common structure throughout all standards facilitates the integration of various management systems. Users of ISO 9001:2015, ISO 14001:2015 and ISO 45001 will already be familiar with this structure. In practice, the change in structure will make it easier for organizations to combine ISO 22000 with other management system standards.

In accordance with the changes in ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015, the new version of ISO 22000 is also a risk-based standard. The standard will distinguish between risk at the operational level l (through the Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point approach (HACCP)), as well at the strategic level of the management system and its ability to reach its specified goals as such.

The standard now consistently distinguishes two Plan-Do-Check-Act (PDCA) cycles. The first applies to the management system as a whole, while the second, within it, addresses the operations described in Clause 8, which simultaneously cover the HACCP principles. This is illustrated in the graph below.

Timeline

The new version of FSSC 22000 will be published in May 2019. Audits against the FSSC 22000 Scheme requirements V4.1 are only allowed latest December 31st of 2019. All issued FSSC 22000 V4.1 certificates will become invalid after 29 June 2021. Upgrade audits against FSSC 22000 Scheme requirements V5 shall be conducted between 1st January 2020 and 31st December 2020.
