Short information about FSSC 22000:
The FSSC 22000 standard was first implemented with combining PAS 220 specification with International standard ISO 22000. After issue of ISO 22002-1, validity of PAS 220 has been ended. FSSC 22000 is anymore a combination of ISO 22000 and ISO 22002-1 requirements supported with some additional requirements by FSSC as a result of requirements demanded by GFSI.
Official information about FSSC 22000 taken from its web site :

FSSC 22000 contains a complete certification scheme for Food Safety Systems based on existing standards for certification (ISO 22000, ISO 22003 and technical specifications for sector PRPs). 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 technical specifications for sector PRPs to meet this certification scheme. Organizations that want to integrate quality in their management systems follow the requirements of ISO 9001.
It is developed for the certification of food safety systems of organizations in the food chain that process or manufacture animal products, perishable vegetal products, products with a long shelf life, (other) food ingredients like additives, vitamins, bio-cultures and food packaging material manufacturing.
FSCC 22000 is ready for new scopes at the moment the necessary technical specifications for sector PRPs have been realized and large players in the international food sectors would request FSSC 22000 to cover these sectors.
FSSC 22000 has as mission to be the globally leading, independent, non-profit, ISO-bases and GFSI-accepted food safety certification scheme for the whole supply chain.
The FSSC 22000 certification scheme has been given full recognition by the Global Food Safety Initiative Board of Directors. This follows an extensive benchmarking process using the requirements laid out in the GFSI Guidance Document Version 5, and an addendum which was issued in December 2009. FSSC will be benchmarked against GFSI GD 6. The Foundation for Food Safety Certification retains the ownership and the copyright and the licence agreements for certification bodies
