The IFS PACsecure standard is currently under revision. In the following, we will provide you with all the important information about the timetable and possible changes.
After the meeting of an Expert Review Group in March 2019, followed by an open consultation in April, the Review Group will now analyse the survey results, expert feedback, GFSI documents, market developments and the latest changes in the IFS Food Standard. This will result in a first draft of IFS PACsecure Version 2.0. Test audits are planned for 2020, the results of which will contribute to a next draft. The final IFS PACsecure Version 2 Standard is planned to be ready for use at the end of 2020 or the beginning of 2021.
The purpose of the IFS PACsecure Standard is to assess the quality and safety of all types of primary and secondary packaging. Currently there are no further details about the coming changes available. In our newsletter we will keep you updated about the further developments.
