Following the release of the updated FSSC 22000 to version 4.0 in January 2017, subsequent developments such as the additional updating of the GFSI benchmarking requirements to version 7.1, an evaluation against European Accreditation (EA) procedure EA 1/22 and feedback from the industry and CBs necessitated a secondary revision of the Scheme to FSSC 22000 version 4.1
. The updated Scheme requirements were published in July 2017 and can be downloaded for free from the FSSC 22000 website.
A detailed comparison document
has been published (see website) which helps to highlight the changes made to the Scheme documents in the second revision and the edits made.
The FSSC Board of Stakeholders has determined that all certified sites, shall be audited against version 4.1 starting from January 1, 2018.
