ISO 22000:2018 Food Safety management System
ISO 22000:2018 is the latest global Food Safety Management System (FSMS).
The ISO 22000:2018 international standard enables organizations to control food safety hazards along the food chain in order to ensure that food is safe at the time of consumption.
Food safety is related to the presence of food-borne hazards in food at the point of consumption (intake by the consumer). As the introduction of food safety hazards can occur at any stage of the food chain, adequate control throughout the food chain is essential. Food safety is ensured through combined efforts of all parties participating in the food chain. ISO 22000 specifies requirements for a food safety management system that combines elements such as interactive communication, system management, prerequisite programmes and HACCP principles.
