FSSC 22000: guaranteeing food safety

FSSC 22000 (Food Safety System Certification) is a management system that addresses food safety through the control of biological, chemical and physical hazards.

FSSC 22000 typically includes everything from raw material production, procurement and handling to manufacturing, distribution and consumption of the finished product.

HACCP vs FSSC 22000

HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points) has been used for many years as the management system for food safety, but since 2005, there has been the FSSC 22000 quality mark. Where HACCP is purely focused on food safety, FSSC 22000 goes further. In addition to food safety, FSSC 22000 also looks at business processes and structures. This is the reason why we switched from HACCP to FSSC 22000.

Food and safety within DSV

Within DSV, the guidelines of FSSC 22000 are used to keep our internal processes as well as our external processes hygienic and safe. Especially goods that are sensitive to temperature change and /or can decay, it is necessary to comply with the strict guidelines.

The HACCP certificate was obtained in 2006 and the FSSC 22000 certification, which is the replacement for HACCP, is valid up to and including 2021. After the expire date, a new assessment will take place to see whether DSV still meets the food and safety requirements. Through this link you can see the current FSSC 22000 certificate.
