The International Federation for Produce Standards (IFPS) is pleased to advise that the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) has registered IFPS as a liaison with the committee for ISO/T 34/SC 17 Management systems for food safety.
This liaison means that IFPS will be able to contribute to the process of the ongoing
development of this ISO Standard. This gives IFPS members a voice in a process that affects the industry they represent.
IFPS Chairman Dr Hans Maurer (United Fresh New Zealand) said “The work ISO does in the
area of Standards development is critical in today’s global market – particularly in the area
of food safety. For IFPS to be able to participate in this process can only enhance the
robustness of Standards applicable in the fresh produce industry in years to come.”
