FSSC 22000 version 4.1

July 2017 – FSSC 22000 launches version 4.1 of its international food safety and quality management system certification Scheme.
Following the release of the updated FSSC 22000 to version 4.0 in January 2017, subsequent developments such as the additional update 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.

The FSSC Board of Stakeholders has determined that all certified sites shall be audited against version 4.1 starting from January 1, 2018.
