ISO 22000 Food Safety Management System

ISO 22000 Food Safety Management System

What

ISO 22000 is a framework for a Food Safety Management System (FSMS) incorporating Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs), Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) principles and ISO 9001:2000 elements. ISO 22000 sets general food safety requirements that can be applied worldwide by all organizations from farm to fork. 

This International Standard specifies requirements for a food safety management system where an organization in the food chain needs to demonstrate its ability to control food safety hazards in order to ensure that food is safe at the time of human consumption. The standard is intended to address only aspects of food safety concerns.

Why 

By adopting ISO 22000, organization is able to: 

  • Demonstrate compliance with applicable statutory and regulatory food safety requirements

  • Evaluate and assess customer requirements and demonstrate conformity with those mutually agreed customer requirementsthat relate to food safety, in order to enhance customer satisfaction

  • Effectively communicate food safety issues to their suppliers, customers and relevant interested parties in the food chain

  • Ensure that the organization conforms to its stated food safety policy
