Why not all the worldwide food safety systems combine and make a one universal food safety system? After that no BRC, HACCP, FSSC 22000, SQF etc. Now a days world is global village then why this global village has too much food safety systems?

GFSI are attempting to create equivalence amongst 3rd party food safety certification standards.  It s long road and a big job.

On my opinion, very far away from real world.

People from Germany (IFS) wont´t ever think as people from UK (BRC).

Sorry....

Hello Charles,

No. KO vs Fundamental is ok,

My point of view is how is the structure of both standards: BRC is a bullet point of compliance, IFS is more open - and retail service perspective

But pls do not take me wrong.....I was teach in the 2000, when all was HACCP or not HACCP.

And now, I see that what matters is the validation of control measures.....the trully understanding of the significant hazards and how to manage them

 

Have a nice weekend!

Monopolizing any system is not a great idea. One, there are far too many political, socioeconomic, and cultural boundaries to negotiate with that in mind. Two, there is entirely too much money involved with certification.

Hello Slab,

 

Very agreeable...certification is too costly. It is almost always a market-driven.
