ISO 22000

ISO 22000 is a standard which supports you in managing food safety. The standard specifies the requirements for a food safety management system that involves interactive communication, system management, prerequisite programmes and HACCP principles.

What is ISO 22000?

ISO 22000 is a standard which supports you in managing food safety. The international standard specifies the requirements for a food safety management system that involves interactive communication, system management, prerequisite programmes and HACCP principles.

Who can use ISO 22000?

ISO 22000 is the first standard that all parts of the food supply chain can use, from 'farm to fork'. This includes suppliers of non-food products and services, like cleaning, equipment manufacturers and transport companies. ISO 22000 is right for you whether you're a small, medium or large-sized company; whether you're a bakery with 10 employees, a packaging company, or an international food manufacturer or supermarket.

Benefits?

  • Show commitment - it helps you to manage food safety hazards and risks and communicates this publicly.

  • Stakeholder confidence - if you clients are confident, consumers and legislators will be too.

  • Integrate easily - it has the same format as other standards, including ISO 9001 and ISO 14001. So it's easy to integrate with the standards you're using at the moment.

  • Supplier of choice - ISO 22000 is recognised throughout the global food chain. Large food producers are especially keen on ISO 22000.

  • Save time and money - at the moment lots of organisations need several food safety standards. This means there's often overlap between the standards, and you have to spend more time and money getting them. ISO 22000 is the tool to harmonise all HACCP based.
