"How to" FSSC 22000

What is FSSC?

FSSC 22000 is fast becoming one of the more popular audit standards in South Africa. It is GFSI (Global Food Safety Initiative) approved, widely accepted all over the globe and is becoming the go-to standard for large players in the food industry. It is well structured and comprehensive, but is less prescriptive than other international standards. FSSC 22000 consists of ISO 22000 (Food Safety) and ISO/TS 22002-1 (Prerequisites for Food Safety).

We do not simply go through the requirements of the standard. We show you how to actually implement FSSC 22000 

Course Overview

There are several courses/workshops on FSSC 22000 in the industry. What makes this one different is that we do not simply go through the requirements of the standard. We show you how the mechanics of the system works and how to implement a FSSC 22000 based food safety management system. We demonstrate and practice each step of the way.

Please note, this course is aimed at learners with previous food safety management experience. For delegates who understand basic food safety principles but need guidance on upgrading to FSSC 22000.

Get a clear understanding of tricky concepts such as OPRP's, validation and verification.


The course facilitator is Rolf Uys, who has 20 years experience in training and implementing Food Safety Management systems in 50 countries. He used to be an international FSSC 22000 lead auditor himself before joining Entecom. He promises to make the course fun and interactive with modern training and presentation techniques.
