Unlike the HACCP rules, ISO 22000 is a complete control standard that includes the entire HACCP system, but also applies to management.
The version of this standard is FSSC 22000 security of the supply chain, which we also certify. The ISO 22000 family of international standards deals with food safety management.
The consequences of unsafe food can be serious, and ISO food safety management standards will help organizations identify and control the risks to food safety. As many today’s food products cross national borders several times, international standards are needed to ensure the global food supply chain security.
ISO 22000: 2005 defines the requirements for a food safety management system and can be certified. Define what organization needs to do to demonstrate its ability to control food safety hazards to ensure safe food. It can be used by any organization regardless of size or position in the food chain.
