Managing the NPD Process


  • The Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI version 2020.1) updated the benchmarking requirements to include the additional requirement for a Product Design and Development procedure for new products or changes to products or manufacturing processes to ensure that safe and legal products are produced
  • All organizations with a GFSI recognized food safety certification such as FSSC 22000 and BRCGS, now need to meet the requirements of this new clause.


This course aims to address the NPD requirements for the FSSC 22000 and BRC standards, as well as provide additional practical tips and information for implementing an NPD process.
