Accredited Freshcare Certification and GFSI Benchmarking

Published on May 12, 2017

Congratulations to Freshcare Certification Bodies Sci Qual International Pty Ltd and AUS-QUAL Pty Ltd for successfully achieving JAS-ANZ accreditation (ISO17065) for the Freshcare Food Safety and Quality Standard.

Freshcare is required to have operated for at least 12 months as an accredited certification, with at least 10 accredited certificates issued by each of two approved Certification Bodies, before we can lodge our completed benchmark application with the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI).

A preliminary GFSI benchmark document has been completed against GFSI v6.2; this will now be updated to the requirements of the recently released GFSI v7.1 for lodgement with GFSI in December 2017.
