What is it?

BS EN ISO 22000 is the international standard for food safety management systems. It outlines regulatory requirements for all organisations involved in the food supply chain. BS EN ISO 22000 highlights and combines the key food safety actions that organisations must demonstrate and fulfil. These include hazard analysis and critical control points (HACCP), improved communication across the supply chain and more effective management systems. Food safety is the responsibility of all parties involved, to prevent food contamination and ensure the quality of the end product.

How does it work?

BS EN ISO 22000 bridges the gap between BS EN ISO 9001 and HACCP. It gives you the confidence to identify and prevent food safety hazards throughout the supply chain. The standard outlines ways to improve planning, documentation and controls, as well as streamline processes. Use BS EN ISO 22000 to improve communication with suppliers, customers and regulators, providing a systematic and proactive approach to identifying and preventing food safety hazards. BS EN ISO 22000 can be applied as an individual standard or used in combination with BS EN ISO 9001:2000. It also provides a framework for third party certification.
