Organizations pursuing ISO 22000 certification should have a more focused, coherent, and integrated FSMS than is generally required by legislation. Any applicable food safety-related statutory and regulatory criteria must be met in the food safety system, according to the standard.
The goal of ISO 22000:2018 is to help you build a strong Food Safety Management System that fosters continuous improvement of all processes that affect food end-product safety. Whether you’re a farmer, a food processor, an importer, a supplier, or a retailer, we’ve got you covered.
ISO 22000 accreditation is applicable to any company in the food chain, regardless of size, from feed producers to primary producers, food manufacturers, transport and storage operators, and subcontractors, as well as retail and food outlets.
The standard can be used by interconnected businesses such as equipment, packaging, cleaning agents, additives, and ingredient manufacturers. It could be used to describe service providers. Any items that come into touch with the food business or the food chain will be subject to some or all of the ISO 22000 certification standards.
ISO 22000:2018 is an effective framework for implementing a food safety management system. It is used by companies across the food chain to help deliver food that is safe to eat (FSMS).
The new edition of ISO 22000 introduces the Plan-Do-Check-Act (PDCA) cycle and risk-based thinking, in addition to making ISO 22000 and the associated FSMS easier to connect with other ISO management systems.
