Lloyd’s Accredited to Deliver New Global Food Safety Certification

Lloyd’s Accredited to Deliver New Global Food Safety Certification

Lloyd’s Register Quality Assurance (LRQA) has been accredited to deliver a new certification scheme for food safety management systems. LRQA has been accredited to deliver FSSC 22000 – a complete certification scheme for food safety management systems. LRQA is one of the first organisations to receive United Kingdom Accreditation Services (UKAS) approval and has already issued its first accredited FSSC 22000 client certificate.

“Across the food supply chain, organisations are facing tougher stakeholder demands, rapidly changing business conditions and increased competition,” says Cor Groenveld, LRQA’s global product manager for food services. “As a result, they are seeking more effective control of operations, improved performance and better management of risk throughout their business. The FSSC 22000 accreditation is a further endorsement of LRQA’s competence, impartiality and ability to add more value to organisations across the food sector.”

There is an increasing need for synchronised certification of food safety systems to create confidence that all necessary measures have been taken to ensure food safety in previous links of the chain. As a result, FSSC 22000 has drawn the interest of more than a few blue chip food-services companies, not least of which is Cargill, the international provider of food, agricultural and risk-management products and services. Cargill is rolling out FSSC 22000 to over 1,000 plants in 67 countries.

The scheme is using existing standards for certification (ISO 22000, PAS 220 and ISO 22003) and the certification will be accredited under the standard ISO guide 17021. Manufacturers that are already certified against ISO 22000 will only need an additional review against BSI PAS 220 to meet this certification scheme.
