The FSSC 24000 scheme is a social management system scheme. It aims to support organizations to drive continuous improvement in their management system, protect their brand and acquire an approach that contributes to the sustainable development objectives determined by the united nations.
The scheme is based on: BSI/PAS 24000 – Social Management System and FSSC 24000 Additional Requirements (determined by FSSC stakeholders).
This scheme is intended for organizations in the manufacturing and processing sector (food and non-food), including the provision of services. The only exclusions considered are Processing, manufacturing, and related trade to tobacco and tobacco products, fur and fur products, weapons, explosives, ammunition, and nuclear fuel products.
The FSSC 24000 scheme is aligned with the harmonized ISO structure. Organizations with an established and certified management system will be able to integrate this certification scheme with a focus on compliance with social objectives and performance.
To obtain FSSC 24000 certification, organizations shall develop, implement, and maintain the following requirements of the scheme:
