ISO 22000:2018


ISO food safety management standards help organizations identify and control hazards to food safety while working with other ISO management standards, such as ISO 9001. Applicable to all types of manufacturers, ISO 22000 provides a reassurance layer within the global food supply chain, helping products cross borders and bringing food to people they can trust.

ISO 22000:2018 certification covers all processes that impact the safety of the end product in the food chain. The standard sets out the requirements for a comprehensive food safety management system and incorporates the elements of good manufacturing practices (GMP) and critical control points (HACCP) for hazard analysis.

ISO 22000:2018 establishes a common standard for food safety that harmonizes the various national standards into one easy-to-understand set of specifications that are easy to enforce and accepted worldwide. This globally accepted food safety standard can be used by all food supply organizations from farming to food distribution, manufacturing, and transportation.

Who needs?

ISO 22000 certification applies to any entity in the food chain, irrespective of its size, from feed farmers, primary producers to food manufacturers, storage and transport operators and retail and food subcontractors

Elements of ISO 22000:2018

One may define the main elements as follows:

The Management Team includes

Food safety isn't just something the quality department needs to handle. It is a matter of top management. ISO 22000 focuses on the involvement of the management team, which must develop a policy overall.


Since food safety hazards can be implemented at any stage of the food chain, interactive communication is important, both upstream and downstream. Furthermore, internal communication is an essential element for avoiding misunderstandings and minimizing risks. In this connection, a common vocabulary is a great help.

The principles of the HACCP (Hazard Analysis & Critical Control Point)

ISO 22000 combines recognized HACCP concepts with prerequisite principals. The hazardous analysis defines an action plan setting out a policy and the preconditions for programs.

System Execution

ISO 22000 is based on a standardized management framework, based on applicable ISO 9001 sections. Together with ISO 14001, it is possible to combine these into one management framework.

System Specifications

Classify the prerequisite programs into 2 subcategories. The Infrastructure and Maintenance programs that cover permanent food safety features. The operating precondition programs are aimed at raising the possibility of hazards in the product or processing environment.
