Hello, may I have some questions?

 

We are processing frozen fish fillets and exporting to New Zealand.

We've already certified FSSC 22000 standard but our customer is asking for Costco approval certificate.

I believe that we have already attained GFSI certification from Costco approved CB (DNV-GL).

But Costco also recommend that all GFSI Certification Programs are required to be accompanied by the applicable Costco Addendum.

 

My questions are that -
 

What is Costco Addendum?

What are the standards that not including in GFSI certification programs?

 

Thank you for your time.

:smile:

Costco Addendum is like a mini audit - just for Costco.

 

If you sell to Costco or are a supplier to a seller to Costco then you would need to have the addendum.  Check to see if your CB is approved by Costco to provide this service as it is normally done at the same time as your regular FSSC audit would be done.

 

CB's have to be approved by Costco and not all are and that may be because the CB has to pay a fee to Costco in order to be "approved."  


Kind regards,

Yes, we had to switch CB because Costco did not approve the one we were originally with,
