What is GFSI Certification?

This term is slightly misleading as GFSI does not provide certification services, but you can achieve certification to a GFSI-recognised Certification Programme through a successful third-party audit against any of the certification programmes that have been recognised by the Global Food Safety Initiative.

A food safety certification programme is ‘recognised’ by GFSI when it meets internationally recognised food safety requirements, developed by a multi-stakeholders group, which are set out in the GFSI Benchmarking Requirements.

Benchmarked standards include:

  • PrimusGFS Standard (v2.1)
  • IFS PACsecure, Version 1
  • Global Aquaculture Alliance Seafood BAP Seafood Processing Standard
  • GLOBALG.A.P. Integrated Farm Assurance Scheme version 5, Produce Safety Standard version 4 and Harmonized Produce Safety Standard
  • Global Red Meat Standard (GRMS) 4th Edition Version 4.1
  • FSSC 22000
  • CanadaGAP Scheme Version 6 Options B, C and D and Program Management Manual Version 6
  • SQF CODE 8TH EDITION
  • BRC GLOBAL STANDARD FOR FOOD SAFETY ISSUE 7
  • IFS Food Standard Version 6
  • BRC/IoP Global Standard for Packaging and Packaging Materials Issue 5
  • IFS Logistics Version 2.1
  • BRC Global Standard for Storage and Distribution Issue 3
