Does FSSC 22000 require all raw materials used having Quality Management System (QMS)?

Hi all,
Please advise if it is obligatory that all raw materials used for production in FSSC22000 certified plant, are controlled with QMS? If an ingredient does not have, does it violate FSSC22000 requirement?
Thanks & Best Regards,

Hi Jonhny

FSSC22000 requires that you have a list of all suppliers including ingredient, packaging and service providers etc.

If you choose to leave something off you would need to do a comprehensive risk assessment to justify this decision.

Kevin has a deep dive familiarization on FSSC 22000 and provides free certification training. They are accepting questions such as this.
