Waiver process and forms

The CSM Department is constantly updating the information how to proceed with cancelled or postponed audits during the corona crisis. For the moment the following standards allow a waiver process:

  • FSSC 22000
  • ISO 22000
  • QS (German standard)
  • BRC
  • System Certification in general

Since last issue of the newsletter on friday things have evolved and also FSSC is now allowing a waiver process. In order to make thinks more easy for you FSSC, ISO 22000, HACCP, QS, and FAMI-QS are summarized in one waiverdocument.

For BRC and Systemcertification you will still need a separate waiver form to be filled in, but the CSM Department is working on an integration of these processes into one document as well.

For IFS Standards there is currently no waiver process foreseen from the standard owner.

All waiver forms are on an extranet site for your quick access. Please find the information here.

If you have further question, please do not hesitate to contact Elke Brautlecht, Certification Scheme Manager Food / Feed TÜV NORD CERT GmbH, in Hannover.
