No matter the size of your company, you can improve food safety with the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) Global Markets Programme. This comprehensive step-by-step tool, managed by a GFSI technical working group and provided through NSF, follows a continuous implementation process.

This voluntary program is structured as a four-phase checklist with the ultimate goal of gaining certification to one of the GFSI-recognized schemes. NSF is one of the leading accredited certification bodies for GFSI benchmarked schemes and an assessment provider for the GFSI Global Markets Programme.

Take Advantage of a Comprehensive Program

The GFSI Global Markets Programme has four phases to address the most important aspects of food safety:

  • Phase 1, self-assessment: Your business carries out a self-assessment against the basic and/or intermediate level checklist to determine your entry level to the program.
  • Phase 2, basic level checklist: We perform an unaccredited assessment of your business against the basic level checklist.
  • Phase 3, intermediate level checklist: We perform an unaccredited assessment of your business against the intermediate level checklist.
  • Phase 4, GFSI certification: We perform the accredited certification against one of the GFSI-recognized schemes.
