IFS Food Version 7 ab dem 01.07.2021 verpflichtend



New IFS version mandatory from 01.07.2021 for all companies in the European Economic Area and the United Kingdom.

The introduction of a new "IFS Food Version 7" is imminent. This is mandatory for all companies operating in Europe and the United Kingdom from 01.07.2021.

In addition to simplifying communication between retailers and suppliers, the aim of version 7 is to guarantee increased security. This makes it possible to prove the authenticity of the certificate to your business partners. This gives you the opportunity to prove compliance with the prescribed standards.


GLN - Global Location Number

This is a kind of fingerprint that makes it possible to clearly identify production locations as well as parts of a company. And this applies to both national and international business transactions.

Due to the uniqueness of the global location number, it is necessary to have at least one number for each location.

Darüber hinaus kommt der GLN auch eine besondere Bedeutung im Zertifizierungsprozess zu.



To prevent counterfeiting, the authenticity of the GLN is guaranteed by an entry in GEPIR, a global GS1 database. This way, your business partners can be sure that you adhere to the highest standards.


Consequences if you do not act now.

If you miss the deadline, you will no longer be able to convince your business partners to comply with the necessary standards. Therefore, do not let it come to that and act now!
