My organization is currently ISO 9001:2008 certified as well as HACCP certified. We are looking to get our SOF 2000 certification. Does anyone know of a comparioson chart that has a comparison of the two standards? Thank you for your help. :rolleyes:

Dear vonsigler,

Sorry if I'm being dense but yr query is a little unclear to me.

Do you mean a comparison between ISO 9001 (a QMS system) and SQF2000 (a FSMS or FSQMS system?

or between [ISO 9001 (a QMS System) + "X" HACCP] and SQF2000/FSMS or SQF2000/FSQMS

(I presume both SQF2000 options are available for Packaging as they are for Food, didn't check)

or ? :smile:

Kind Regards,

If you are ISO9001 and HACCP, I recommend looking into FSSC22000 (Upgrade of ISO22000) instead of SQF2000 since your systems are based on ISO.
While ISO9001 is for proper organization of your procedures/work instructions and HACCP of safe food processes, FSSC22000 regroups both and makes sure that everything surronding those 2 standards, collides.
I don't have a chart to compare both but I am part of a council reviewing the ISO22000 & upgrade and comparing it to SQF, BRC, etc.

I had a comparison chart at one time but I have not been able to find it. If you have ISO 9000 and HACCP you have covered most of SQF.

However, as Spice mentioned, FSSC may be a better fit since it is based on ISO.

And FSSC 22000 is GFSI approved, (as is SQF) which means in theory they are equally good standards to follow and in theory should be accepted by your customers. However, before deciding which way to go it is always a good idea to survey a few of your largest customers to see which they prefer (if any). Hopefully they will all prefer the same (or none). :smile:
