ISO 22000 Food Safety Management

ISO 22000 is an international standard that defines the requirements of a food safety management system covering all sizes of all organizations throughout the food chain.

What are the benefits of ISO 22000?

  • Introduce internationally recognized processes to your business
  • Give suppliers and stakeholders confidence in your hazard controls
  • Put these hazard controls in place across your supply chain
  • Introduce transparency around accountability and responsibilities
  • Continually improve and update your systems so it stays effective
  • ISO 22000 contains the food safety management system requirements of FSSC 22000 (which is a Global Food Safety Initiative, GFSI recognized scheme) and is used along with requirements for prerequisite programs for the appropriate industry sector

ISO 22000:2018 is available

With a greater focus on risk-based thinking and aligned to ISO’s high level structure, the new ISO 22000 Food Safety Management Systems can deliver additional benefits to organizations  of all sizes throughout the food chain:

  • Improved control over food safety activities
  • Customer, statutory and regulatory compliance
  • Facilitated market growth
  • Increased customer, stakeholder and consumer confidence in products
  • Improved risk management
  • Integration with other ISO management systems

Organizations currently certified to ISO 22000:2005 will have three years to transition to the new standard.

ISO 22000:2018 Food Safety Management Transition     

Used by organizations across the food chain to help deliver food that’s safe to eat, ISO 22000:2018 is an excellent framework to help implement a food safety management system (FSMS).

How food is grown, transported, manufactured and even consumed has changed significantly since the original standard was published over a decade ago. The new standard considers these changes and aims to help organizations reduce food safety hazards.

In addition to making ISO 22000 and the resulting FSMS easier to integrate with other ISO management systems, the new version of the standard also introduces the Plan-Do-Check-Act (PDCA) cycle and risk-based thinking. By combining PDCA and risk-based thinking to manage business risk with HACCP to identify, prevent and control food safety hazards, ISO 22000 helps organizations to reduce exposure to risk and improve safety.
