As a result of market developments and the latest scientific insights, food safety standards such as IFS, BRCGS and FSSC 22000 are revised regularly. In this webinar, our food safety experts will give you an update on key developments, highlight typical pitfalls, and discuss challenges with you. Our goal? To give you the best possible preparation for upcoming audits.

In 2021, the application of IFS Food 7 and FSSC 22000 version 5.1 became mandatory. The new revisions have brought some significant changes, including the introduction of unannounced audits. During the webinar, we will talk about our experiences in implementing the two revised standards.

Together with you, our auditors would like to discuss some frequently asked questions from audit practice and address the interpretation of selected requirements. You will also learn all the important details about IFS Food Version 8.

Secure your place and take the opportunity to update your knowledge! The webinar is open to anyone – certified or not certified.
