I've recently started work for a plastic packaging manufacturer, and have a food background. The company has the following accreditations:
- FSSC 22000 Certification scheme for food safety systems including ISO 22000:2005, ISO/TS 22002-4:2013 and additional FSSC 22000 requirements.
- CAC HACCPVER:2003 - CODEX HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point) and GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices)
- QUALITY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM which complies with the requirements of ISO 9001:2015 for the following scope The manufacture of flexible packaging products for food and general applications
- BRC Global Standard for Packaging and Packaging Materials Issue 5: July 2015
Reading through some forum posts I get that FSSC22000 = iso22000 + iso22002-4 ( in our case .
My question is this - Does not the BRC accreditation essentially encompass all of the other elements - do we really need to maintain these other accreditations ?
