SCS auditing program achieves ANSI accreditation

April 30, 2009

Accreditation is for ISO/IEC Guide 65

Scientific Certifications Systems’ (SCS) independent food safety auditing and assessment services conducted on behalf of Safe Quality Foods standards (SQF 1000 and SQF 2000) have been accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) to ISO/IEC Guide 65, an internationally recognized performance standard for third-party certification bodies. SCS’s approach is focused on risk prevention-incorporating risk assessment to determine which products and processes represent the greatest risks. The assessments provide adequate time to conduct audits to prevent shortcuts from being taken and ask the right questions about potential vectors of contamination and security breaches. In addition, SCS provides verification through lab testing services.
