ISO 22000

Food Safety Management Systems (FSMS) Requirements for any organization in the food chain and needed to develop a food safety management system.

The standard is based on the Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) principles, which require organizations to identify and control hazards that could make food unsafe. It also includes requirements for communication, training, documentation, and continual improvement.


The ISO 22000: 2005 family is a series of standards for organizations in the food chain.

The difference between ISO 22000: 2005 and the HACCP

  • Codex HACCP is an excellent guidance document, provides information about the principles of HACCP
  • ISO 22000: 2005 is an auditable standard.
  • Having general requirements for a food safety management system.
  • Validation, verification and improvement of the food safety management system.
  • Management responsibility.
  • Resource management.
  • Planning and realization of safe products.

It’s not only for food processors

  • Food safety is as strong as the weakest link in the food chain.
  • Therefore, ISO 22000: 2005 is written to be used by all organizations that are in the food chain, regardless of size or position in the food chain.
  • It also provides a common description for a food safety management system regardless of whether or not an organization must also comply with national regulatory HACCP requirements.
