ISO 22000 Food Safety Management

ISO 22000 Food Safety Management - About the Standard

ISO 22000 incorporates a complete chain approach to food safety.  It provides a standard that isn't just for food processors, starting at the farm right through to the fork including packaging and ingredient suppliers, caterers, storage & distribution facilities, chemical and machinery manufacturers and can be applied to primary producers such as farms.

ISO 22000 extends the successful management system approach of the ISO 9001:2000 quality management system standard which is widely implemented in all sectors but does not itself specifically address food safety by incorporating the principles of Codex HACCP.

ISO 22000 has been developed and based on the assumption that the most effective food safety systems are designed, operated and continually improved within the framework of a structured management system as well as being incorporated into the overall management activities of the organization.
