Dear ikhsan

 

The usual starting routine is -

 

(1) Get the standard (free? :unsure: )

(2) Do a Gap Analysis

(3) Maybe consider yr financial options.

PS- obviously ISO22000 should enable a helpful transition for many MS/ haccp aspects although i seem to recall that BRC packaging has a somewhat individualistic FS approach (not a packaging person). I'm unsure if BRC IOP  has the same enthusiasm regarding risk assessment as BRC food but that might be a noticeable difference to ISO. Plus you will probably find BRC is generally far more prescriptive (unless perhaps you have used iso 22002 for prerequisites [compulsory for FSSC presumably]).

Other users of IOP will know more than me.

It is also worth browsing through the BRC Packaging forum of course.


Kind Regards,

Hi Ikhsan, Charles offers good advice.

 

As Charles mentions there is some very old (but still useful) documents here: Example BRC/IOP Procedures

 

If you need any further advice let me know.

Regards,
Simon

Hi dianasamson I think that both of them is support for each other..If You Implementation ISO 22000, it is useful to completed BRC certification...(I think).

Dear dianasamson,

 

“Difficulty”  may depend on your individual  background / interpretation of difficulty / requirements, for example -

 

(1) iso22000 will be relatively familiar from a MS POV if you have experience of iso9001.

(2) iso22000 is more generic, ie less prescriptive, than brc

(3) iso22000 requires  learning iso-haccp.

(4) iso22000 is not “recognized” by GFSI.

Etc

 

Rgds / Charles.C

 

PS – afaik PAS223 is a standard for packaging prerequisite programs ( the other 2 are  FSMS standards) and is  optional for iso22000, compulsory (I expect) for fssc22000
