NSF International Receives Food Safety Management Systems Accreditation

March 22, 2010
NSF International Among the First Certification Bodies to Be Approved by ANAB to Conduct Food Safety Management Systems Registrations
NSF International has obtained ISO 22000 accreditation from the ANSI-ASQ National Accreditation Board (ANAB). ISO 22000 accreditation enables NSF International to register food safety management systems for companies worldwide.Maintaining food safety throughout the entire global supply chain has become a main priority for food companies, including crop producers, food manufacturers and processors, and producers of equipment and packaging materials. Food companies are demanding that quality assurance standards and systems be in place to enhance their overall safety and quality efforts, and implementing ISO 22000 is an effective way to demonstrate this commitment.ISO 22000 was created by the International Organization of Standardization to ensure proper and universally-accepted food safety procedures are being followed throughout the supply chain. ISO 22000 shares the same foundation with the universally-accepted Quality Management Standard ISO 9001 but has a greater focus on food safety management and incorporates Hazard Analysis & Critical Control Points (HACCP) principles.Earning accreditation for ISO 22000 provides NSF International with more credibility in the worldwide food market and complements NSF’s existing portfolio of food safety management services, including certifications to Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI)-benchmarked standards such as Safe Quality Food (SQF) and British Retail Consortium (BRC).More information on NSF International’s food safety services, visit http://www.nsf.org/business/iso_22000/index.asp?program=ISO22000.
