FSSC 22000 Information Seminar 11 November 2015 Tokyo

FSSC 22000 is the world's leading nonprofit certification scheme for ISO 22000-based certification of food safety & quality management systems. Benchmarked by GFSI for manufacturing and processing foods, food packaging materials, animal food & feed and animal production. This year we organize a series of three free-to-attend events, specifically aimed at organizations seeking FSSC 22000 certification and food safety professionals.
These seminars are specifically interesting for food producers, manufactures, wholesalers and retailers interested in implementing a professional GFSI acknowledged food safety and quality management system. Attendance is free. To attend please use our online registration forms below. You can register for Amsterdam (21 October 2015), Tokyo (11 November 2015) and Chicago (17 November 2015).
These Information Seminars will take place prior to our annual CB Harmonization Events as inspiring and solution based conferences designed to introduce organizations throughout the entire food supply chain to the added value of FSSC 22000. All aspects ranging from FSSC 22000s global status to its application and expanding scope will be covered. Our exiting programs contain inspiring local keynotes, valuable case studies and a panel discussion. Attendees will leave with new insights, connections and a clear understanding of how they can implement FSSC 22000 in their companies. Please find the up-to-date program on our website.
