Press release date: August 7, 2014

Basking Ridge, NJ, USA — MATHESON announces that four of its air separation units have received Food Safety System Certification (FSSC 22000): San Antonio, TX; West Palm Beach, FL; Stafford, TX; and Dallas, TX. The MATHESON FSSC 22000 system currently applies to the manufacture and distribution of bulk liquid nitrogen.

FSSC 22000 is the world's leading, independently managed, nonprofit food certification scheme for ISO 22000-based certification of food safety management systems. FSSC 22000 is a recognized scheme of the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) for the safe manufacture, packaging, storage and distribution of foods and food packaging materials.

FSSC 22000 adheres to the requirements set forth in the ISO 22000 standard and the ISO TS22002-1 technical requirements. It is the combination of these two sets of requirements that meets the GFSI approved scheme for certification.

Whereas ISO 9001 pertains to the quality of the product and the FDA GMPs address the purity of the product, ISO 22000 looks to the food safety aspects of the product. It covers aspects such as building design, pest control, chemical storage, site access, employee hygiene, internal and external communications and product identification.

"In response to significant demand from our food manufacturing customers, MATHESON began the process of GFSI certification FSSC 22000 standards in late 2012. We have already achieved certification for four of our ASU's with the goal of certification for our entire fleet in the near future," said Hermann Miskelly, Vice President of Quality for MATHESON.

MATHESON is a single source for industrial, welding and safety supplies, medical, specialty and electronic gases, gas handling equipment, high performance purification systems, engineering and gas management services, and on-site gas generation with a mission to deliver innovative solutions for global customer requirements. MATHESON is the largest subsidiary of the Taiyo Nippon Sanso Corporation Group, one of the five largest suppliers of industrial, specialty, and electronics gases in the world.
