IFS Food V7: Requirements and Implementation (new course)


    In October 2020, IFS published its new version of the International Featured Standard, which offers more clarity regarding the expectations about the auditor’s role during an IFS evaluation. IFS has stated that this version also puts more focus on the on-site evaluation than on the documents presented. The list of evaluation requirements is aligned with those in the GFSI version 2020.1 comparative, as well as FSMA and the UE regulations.

    The evaluations of the IFS Food V.7 will be available starting march 2021. The implementation of this version will be mandatory for all certified companies starting July 1, 2021.

    It is a practical course for:

    • Managers, Directors, Supervisors and Quality Assurance Technicians in the Food Industry
    • Consultants and Internal Quality and Safety Auditors in the Food Industry
    • Staff involved in the implementation and control of the IFS Food regulations

    Objective: To acquire the theoretical knowledge about the regulation needed to understand the certification process and the audits, including those regulated by version 7.
