ISO 22000

What is ISO 22000?

ISO 22000 is a global standard for food safety management system designed for the entire food supply chain, covering culture, production, processing, packaging, transportation and sales. It also extends to suppliers of non-food products and services, such as manufacturers of cleaning products and equipment, for organizations of all sizes. ISO 22000 specifies requirements for food safety management systems, involving information exchange, system management, prerequisite programs (PRP), and complements the principles of the HACCP system.

Why is ISO 22000 important for your organization?

ISO 22000 is recognized by the global food supply chain and ISO 22000 certification is a way to become a preferred supplier. ISO 22000 certification can prove to the public your commitment to food safety. It is based on the most advanced best practices and aims to:

  • Building stakeholder confidence
  • Identify, mannage and reduce risks to food security
  • Reduce or eliminate product recalls and disputes
  • Protect the reputation of the brand

ISO 22000 is compatible with other ISO management system standards, which allows you to easily integrate food safety management with quality (ISO 9001), the environment (ISO 14001) or health and safety, workplace safety (OHSAS 18001).

In addition, it can be used in conjunction with industry-specific prerequisite program specifications, such as ISO / TS 22002-1 (formerly PAS 220) or PAS 223, as a reference for the FSSC 22000. ISO 22000
