Harmonization Conferences 2016

FSSC 22000 looks back on two successful Harmonization Conferences in Mexico and Amsterdam for certification and accreditation bodies as well as training organizations. We’re busy with the final preparations for the Harmonization Conference mid November in Singapore.

The main part of the program was dedicated to discuss the FSSC 22000 draft version 4 requirements, specifically the auditor competences and unannounced audits were topics of discussion. The input we received and we will receive during the Singapore conference, will be used to develop the final version of the latest FSSC 22000 scheme. 

Besides version 4, topics like FSMA, Food Fraud and food safety culture were presented and discussed. Not only industry professionals shared their knowledge, also Dutch and Mexican government authorities spoke about their intent to align public and private efforts to protect consumer health. 

Over 200 auditors, training organizations and accreditation bodies participated in the Harmonization Conferences. FSSC 22000 thanks all participants for being present and for sharing their views which will lead to a harmonized and improved FSSC 22000 version 4 Scheme. And we're looking forward to the Harmonization Conference in Singapore.
