Does anyone have a full list of what elements may be audited at the head office as referenced in FSSC 22000 V5 Part 3 Requirements for the Certification Process?  The document refers to purchasing, supplier approval, quality assurance.

Hi John,


The list will be based on individual organisations and the roles of their head office (procurement, supplier approval, quality assurance are given as examples by FSSC 22000 - planning, organisational analysis, leadership, complaint management, product recall are other examples of functions that may be controlled at head office):

In all cases where functions pertinent to the certification are controlled by a Head Office (such as procurement, supplier approval, quality assurance etc.), the Scheme requires that those functions are audited, interviewing the personnel described in the food safety management system as having the (delegated) authority and responsibility for these functions. This Head Office audit shall be documented.


Kind regards,
