IFS Global Markets PACsecure Program
Manage your risks and drive Continuous Improvement
An easy entry into effective product safety and quality processes!
IFS Global Markets PACsecure is a development program for assessing packaging material manufacturing in relation to product safety and quality. It helps gradually build risk-based and optimised product safety and quality management systems and capacity building. The program leads companies on a path towards IFS PACsecure certification, if desired, on which they can set the pace and milestones together with their customers.
With IFS Global Markets PACsecure, businesses can develop processes that enable them to meet both legal and customer requirements step by step. At the same time, they will learn to work more efficiently and economically and lay the foundation for further growth and scalability.
The objective of the global markets program is to facilitate market access locally, create mutual acceptance along the supply chain, and provide a framework for mentoring, developing and assessing packaging companies. The program includes a protocol to incrementally drive the continuous improvement process in the quality and product safety management systems.
Moreover, it offers a flexible application of the stepwise approach in the sense of time, starting level, and final level to achieve.
IFS Global Markets PACsecure follows a risk-based, non-prescriptive approach. It enables custom solutions that take the specific production circumstances into account. Companies can then determine the best-suited methods to control hazards and manage risks.
