How to check whether a FSSC 22000 certificate is valid or not?

Sometimes certificates circulate which do have the FSSC 22000 logo, but are invalid. For example when a certificate is issued by a Certification Body which is not FSSC 22000 licensed. It’s therefore always good to check the validity of the certificate. Certificates are only valid when they are issued by a FSSC 22000 licensed Certification Body and are registered in the Portal or the FSSC 22000 version 3 certificates overview.

However, in some cases certificates are valid, but haven’t been registered in the Portal by their Certification Body yet. In this case, when a certificate cannot be found, please contact the FSSC 22000 secretariat through and provide us with a copy of the certificate.
