Benefits of an IFS certification
Are you thinking about applying for IFS certification? Let us help you in this decision-making process by providing you not only with the standard-specific features, but also with some general information. Our standards can be used for various stages of production, and our newly developed standards can now also be applied to different departments within a company. All standards are risk-based and process-oriented. We do not stipulate how certain risks should be avoided. It is much more important to ensure that the processes you have implemented actually work. This will enable you to reduce your recalls. Certification to an IFS Standard enables you to achieve qualitative improvements, and creates new sales opportunities as IFS certification is becoming a requirement of more and more retailers and manufacturers. It proves not only that the products you manufacture are safe but also that you can implement retailers' specifications.
"IFS enables producers of any size to standardise their processes for safe manufacturing, thus making them easier, more efficient and cost-effective. By successfully implementing IFS Standards, companies demonstrate to their customers not only that they can manufacture a safe product according to customer specifications, but they also save money – this has been confirmed by our studies."
Stephan Tromp, Managing Director of IFS
IFS also provides access to a database that offers a fast and easy way for you to find preliminary suppliers while enabling other companies to find you. The auditXpress software offers further technical advantages, which fully prepare you for your IFS audit and can be used for internal auditing. We will of course support you in the implementation and use of the standards. Our IFS Academy offers you a number of different training programmes. Why not take a look?
