SCV, the foundation for Safety, Quality and Sustainability

SCV has been established in 2004. SCV originally focussed on food safety and provided a legal entity for the food certification system Dutch HACCP (Requirements for a HACCP-based Food Safety System). Besides that, SCV facilitates the NTWG GLOBAL G.A.P.

In 2009 SCV developed the food safety management system FSSC 22000 has issued over 13,000 certificates in over 140 countries since and maintains certification license contracts with over 100+ certification bodies worldwide.  

In 2015 SCV broadened its focus to include developments in the field of Quality and Sustainability. The latest initiative on safety and quality management is HPC 420, a certification standard for the international Home, Laundry and Personal Care Industry.

To serve the interests for all stakeholders of these initiatives best, both FSSC 22000 and HPC420 are accommodated and managed through independent, non-for-profit foundations: Foundation FSSC 22000 and Foundation HPC 420.
