Consequently, over the last 12 months members of the GFSI Services Provision TWG, made up of representatives from ANSI National Accreditation Board, BSI, Ecolab, Dole, CampdenBRI, Rentokil-Initial, Eurofins, Control Union, HACCP-International, Cr Orlix, Bureau Veritas, Daymon Worldwide, and Vikan, have been working collaboratively to work on GFSI Scope I - Provision of food safety services. Our remit is to,
- provide detailed definitions of the scopes and services covered by it;
- produce a review of existing certifications applicable to those services;
- set Benchmarking Requirements for the key parameters for those specified services; and
- review of the Benchmarking Requirements glossary in light of the new scope.
So far, we have met in France and China (thankfully before the current coronavirus outbreak!) and are making steady progress.
Our next get together will be on 24th and 25th February in Seattle, USA. These meetings precede the start of the 2020 GFSI Conference, also in Seattle. 2020 marks the 20th anniversary of GFSI and this year’s conference theme is ‘One Connected World. One Safe Food Supply’.
