ISO 22000 Food Safety Management

ISO 22000 was designed as an accessible, globally accepted standard, and is applicable to organisations of all sizes involved in any aspect of the food supply chain. The standard covers the key components for ensuring food safety including interactive communication, system management, implementation of prerequisite programmes and the continual review and improvement of the system.

ISO 22000 is an internationally recognised standard that combines the ISO 9001 approach to food safety management and HACCP for the assurance of food safety at all levels. The standard maps out how an organisation can demonstrate its ability to control safety hazards to ensure that food   is safe.
