ISO 22000 - Food Safety Management System
*ISO 22000:2018 replaced ISO 22000:2005 in November 2018
For organisations that have ISO 22000, they now have a 3 year window to transition to the new standard or lose their accreditation!
ISO 22000 is an internationally-recognised standard that harmonises various existing national and industry certification schemes. It incorporates HACCP (Hazard Analysis of Critical Control Points) principles and implementation plans, and creates an effective framework for food safety management, communication along the food supply chain, and control of food safety hazards.
