What is ISO 22000?
ISO 22000:2018 is the International Food Safety standard, designed to harmonize on a global scale the requirements for food safety management for businesses within the food chain.
ISO 22000 combines and supplements the core elements of ISO 9001 and HACCP to provide an effective framework for the development, implementation, monitorization and continual improvement of a documented Food Safety Management System (FSMS) within the context of the organization’s overall business risks.
ISO 22000 certification is intended for organizations seeking to establish a more focussed, coherent and integrated FSMS than is normally required by law. The standard requires meeting any applicable food safety related statutory and regulatory criteria into its food safety system.
