As you may be aware, FSSC 22000 has benchmarked and approved ISO/TS 22002-4 to replace the PAS 223 as the technical specification for PRP’s for Food Packaging manufacturers.
There are only minor differences between the documents and the FSSC has announced there will not be any changes in the FSSC scheme requirements. Over the next few weeks, we will review our procedures and make any necessary changes. Once this has been done, we will update you with any information you need. The transition of existing certificates can be done during a regular visit - your assessor will discuss this with you in due course.
The FSSC recently announced the following transition rules:
- From November 1 2014 all new FSSC 22000 packaging certificates have to refer to ISO/TS 22002-4
- From November 1 2015 all existing FSSC 22000 packaging certificates have to refer to ISO/TS 22002-4
