ISO 22000

ISO 22000 is the International Food Safety Management Standard. It combines and supplements the core elements of ISO 9001 and HACCP to provide an effective framework for the development, implementation and continual improvement of a Food Safety Management System (FSMS). ISO 22000 aligns with other management systems, such as ISO 9001 and ISO 14001, to enable effective systems integration. 


Benefits of achieving certification to ISO 22000 include:

ISO 22000
  • Customer satisfaction – through delivery of products that consistently meet customer requirements including quality, safety and legality

  • Reduced operating costs – through continual improvement of processes and resulting operational efficiencies

  • Operational efficiencies – by integrating pre-requisite programs (PRP’s & OPRP’s), HACCP with the Plan-Do-Check-Act philosophies of ISO 9001 to increase the effectiveness of the Food Safety Management System

  • Improved stakeholder relationships – including staff, customers and suppliers

  • Legal compliance – by understanding how statutory and regulatory requirements impact the organization and its customers and testing compliance through internal audits and management reviews

  • Improved risk management – through greater consistency and traceability of product
