We are a food manufacturer who has recently started manufacturing packing in house as well. We are already certified to FSSC 22000 (ie ISO22000 + PAS 220) but now need to gain PAS 223 certification as well.

 

From what I can tell, PAS 220 and PAS 223 seem to duplicate most requirements. I was wondering if anyone has a gap analysis of the standards that highlights the additional requirements of PAS 223?

 

I can cross reference the standards but that would take a lot of time and I would be so grateful is anyone has done this already and can share info!

 

Many thanks

Hi Chobbsy,

 

The main difference in requirements between PAS 223 and Pas 220 (Now TS ISO 22002 as PAS 220 has been withdrawn) are:

10.4 Chemical contamination
10.5 Chemical migration
19 Food Packaging design and development
19.1 General requirements
19.2 Communication and change control
19.3 Design
19.4 Specifications
19.5 Process validation
19 Food Packaging design and development

 

Attached is a summary table.

Regards,

As per FSSC, the PAS 223 will be replaced by ISO TS 22002-4; the text and link is provide below

 

FSSC 22000 Certification of Food Packaging Material Manufacturing is currently performed using PAS 223. The ISO/TS 22002-4 was published in 2013. It has now been benchmarked for FSSC 22000 by Karen Smedley of Coca-Cola and Lars Karlsson of Tetra Pak with confirmation of the IIOC. The conclusion of the benchmarking is that the changes from the PAS are minimal in terms of the requirements, and no additional requirements have to be taken up by FSSC 22000 once PAS 223 is replaced by ISO 22002-4.

In order to maintain its objective of being a fully ISO based food safety certification scheme, the Foundation recommends that food manufacturers and their CBs use ISO 22002-4 for issuing new FSSC 22000 certificates. After 1 November 2014, six months after this notification, it will no longer be permitted to use PAS 223 for FSSC 22000. For those companies with existing certificates that refer to PAS 223 there will be a transition period of up to one year to change certificates over to ISO 22002-4, with a requirement for all  certificates to be updated no later October 31st 2015.
