Certification bodies accredited by ANAB for gluten-free management systems (GFMS) are able to certify organizations for GFMS conforming with the requirements of the Allergen Control Group (ACG) Gluten-Free Certification Program.
CBs must be accredited for ISO 22000 (FSMS) prior to applying for GFMS accreditation or apply concurrently for accreditation for ISO 22000 and GFMS.
GFMS is a base standard program in ANAB’s fee schedule.
Please refer to the information about the accreditation process at How to Become an ANAB-Accredited Certification Body.
You can view the GFMS application in .pdf format to understand specific requirements but the application process must be completed online via ANAB’s EQM database; first-time EQM users must register to create an account.
