On Food Safety, the International Standards Organization (ISO) has developed the ISO 22000: 2005 Food Safety Management Systems Standard. ISO 22000: 2005, the official name ISO 22000: 2005 Food Safety Management Systems - Requirements for All Organizations in the Food Chain, is an international standard and includes a Food Safety covering all organizations in the "farm to table" food chain including catering and packaging companies. Defines the conditions of the Management System. Companies that apply these conditions are entitled to receive the ISO 22000 Certificate (HACCP Certificate) at the end of the audit made according to the standard. The ISO 22000 (HACCP) Standard, which is methodologically similar to other ISO quality standards, is implemented with the Demingin PDCA cycle, just like any other. Document and Registration Control is exactly as in ISO 9001: 2008 Standard.
There is a constantly growing customer demand for safe food. This has led to the development of many Food Safety Standards. An increasing number of national standards for food safety management have caused confusion. As a result, there is a need for international compliance and aims to meet this need with ISO 22000: 2005.
The Standard combines accepted key elements to ensure food safety throughout the food chain, including interactive communication, system management, prerequisite programs and control of food safety hazards through HACCP plans, and continuous improvement and updating of the management system.
ISO 22000: 2005 aims to define requirements for companies that want to go beyond legal requirements on food safety.
Why Is ISO 22000 Certificate Required?
It is a true international standard for all organizations in the food chain "from farm to table" including related organizations such as equipment, packaging materials, cleaning materials and additives manufacturers. ISO 22000: 2005 is also for all organizations that want to combine their own food safety management systems with quality management systems such as ISO 9001: 2008.
