New version of the EFISC Rules of Certification published 03/04/2012
The EFISC feed safety management system has been revised in order to change from process to system certification. This step forward provides further improvement of the EFISC feed safety management certification system and will provide a solid basis to strengthen the confidence in EFISC certification. As a result of the revision the EFISC feed safety management system is fully aligned with the requirements in ISO 17021 supplemented by ISO/ TS 22003 (food safety management system). The new set of Certification Rules will be applicable for all new contracts and recertification as of the 1 May 2012. EFISC certificates issued before the 1 May will remain valid for the duration of the three year certification cycle.
The system certification requirement asks for a performance based approach to the operation of the requirements. It provides an extra focus on the management commitment, effectiveness of the system and continuous improvement. Therefore it supports the operator’s commitment to produce safe feed materials with a high level of conformity all year round.
