ISO 22000:2005 - FOOD SAFETY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM (FSMS)

ISO 22000:2005 specifies requirements for a Food Safety Management System (FSMS) where an organisation in the food chain needs to demonstrate its ability to control food safety hazards in order to ensure that food is safe at the time of human consumption. All requirements of ISO 22000 are generic and are intended to be applicable to all organizations in the food chain regardless of size and complexity. This includes organizations directly or indirectly involved in one or more steps of the food chain. Organizations that are directly involved include, but are not limited to, feed producers, harvesters, farmers, producers of ingredients, food manufacturers, retailers, food services, catering services, organizations providing cleaning and sanitation services, transportation, storage and distribution services. Other organizations that are indirectly involved include, but are not limited to, suppliers of equipment, cleaning and sanitizing agents, packaging material, and other food contact materials.

Benefits of 22000

ISO 22000 specifies requirements to enable an organisation to:

  • plan, implement, operate, maintain and update a food safety management system aimed at providing products that, according to their intended use, are safe for the consumer
  • demonstrate compliance with applicable statutory and regulatory food safety requirements
  • evaluate and assess customer requirements and demonstrate conformity with those mutually agreed customer requirements that relate to food safety, in order to enhance customer satisfaction
  • effectively communicate food safety issues to their suppliers, customers and relevant interested parties in the food chain
  • ensure that the organisation conforms to its stated food safety policy
  • demonstrate such conformity to relevant interested parties
  • seek certification or registration of its food safety management system by an external organization, or make a self-assessment or self-declaration of conformity to ISO 22000
