FSSC 22000 Harmonization Event Europe
21 & 22 October 2015 Amsterdam

Each Fall FSSC 22000 has traditionally hosted its annual Harmonization Event in Amsterdam! While everyone is still welcome to join us in for our historic home town, this year, we are offering something different.

Instead of one global event, we invite you to join one (or more) of 3 regional Harmonization Events. While it remains a requirement that all FSSC 22000 licensed Certification Bodies attend an annual Harmonization Day, our expanded program means that you may attend the Harmonization event most convenient to you or your team. Regional representatives of your CB will be welcome to attend additional events.

The Harmonization Days will take place as follows:
Amsterdam (22 October 2015);  Tokyo (12 November 2015) and Chicago (17 November 2015).
Each HD will be in association with an additional information event for all interested stakeholders and industry.

The regional HD's will offer the same informative program, providing deep insight into the added business value of FSSC 22000 certification, the present status of the scheme and future prospects. Participation is mandatory for all FSSC 22000 Licensed CBs and is free of charge. Travel and hotel are at own expenses.

Conference program FSSC 22000 Harmonization Event 2015, Amsterdam, 21 and 22 October 2015

The Harmonization Event will be held over 2 days: Wednesday 21 October and Thursday 22 October at the Dutch Design Hotel Artemis Amsterdam.

During a full two days program we will provide deep insight into the added business value of the Scheme itself, the present status and future plans and we will, together with you all, evaluate the main issues which need further emphasis and harmonization.
