ISO Certificates


Eating unsafe food can be hazardous to health. There is a systematic approach to control food safety problems, which is well-known as FSMS (Food safety management system), within a food business to ensure that the food we eat is safe. Organizations across the food chain use it to deliver food that’s safe to eat for us. ISO 22000:2018 is an impressive framework to help implement a food safety management system. It got published for the first time in 2005. The target of ISO 22000 is to control and decrease safety problems identified for the item that will not undergo any further processing or transformation by the organization before getting delivered to the next step of the food chain.

It takes care of the practices followed in growing food, transporting, and manufacturing food. Lately, it has even taken care of how people consume food. These are factors that have changed with time significantly in the past ten years. This new standard aims to reduce these food safety problems. All businesses are required to put in place, implement and maintain an FSMS based on the principles of “Hazards Analysis Critical Control Point” (HACCP).

It is an integrated effort. ISO 22000:2018 has its principles based on Annex SL - the ISO High-Level Structure (HLS) that brings a similar structure to all management systems. It helps the organization align its practices to the system standards, and it offers the organization to match sub-clauses and give it an equal fitting with organizations of the top-level hierarchy. With the help of these guidelines, organizations can incorporate food safety management practices into their core business. The senior management would also be involved.

Benefits of ISO 22000 Certificate

Consumers along with supply chains face new food safety challenges as the first publication of ISO 22000 in 2005. In June 2018, ISO 22000 standard got published. ISO Standards get revised frequently. Once in five years, the standards are reviewed to determine whether it is necessary to revise, to ensure that the standards remain relevant, easy, and useful to the businesses.
Key Features of ISO 22000-2018 are as follows :
  • Involvement of the management team: Food safety is a top management issue that needs to be handled by the management team and not only by the quality department; it is a shared responsibility. ISO 22000 focuses on the involvement of the management and is now an overall policy.
  • Communication: It is essential to focus on communicating newly introduced food safety hazards, irrespective of the stage in the food chain it has been introduced. Additionally, to avoid misunderstandings and minimize risks internal communication is the key element.
  • The HACCP (Hazard Analysis & Critical Control Point) principles: The recognized HACCP principle and the prerequisite program are combined by ISO 22000. The hazard analysis determines a strategy and the prerequisite programs set up an action plan.
  • System Management: ISO 22000 depends on a Structured management system based on appropriate parts of ISO 9001. It is possible to combine them into one management system together with ISO 14001.
  • Prerequisite Program: There are two subcategories of the Prerequisite Program. The Infrastructure and Maintainance programs cover permanent features in the safety of food.
There is a lot of focus on the higher-level management to set an example with their leadership and commitment regarding the FSMS and food safety policy. It is also the responsibility of the higher-level management to ensure, that there is an organization-level awareness on the goals related to Food Safety, and where they stand, as an organization, and the roadmap to getting to the destination of ensuring high-quality food. This can be accomplished only with the help of clear and effective communication.

How to Register for ISO 22000 Certification?

A certificate to the ISO 22000 norm can upgrade an organization's believability by showing clients that its products and services meet conventions.

This audited record becomes an action plan.

Includes an exhaustive assessment by auditor on the existing and improved quality controls, covering the detections of non-conformances.

Minor non-conformances comprise minor procedural blames or holes in the framework in consistence with ISO guidelines. The shortcomings of the current quality principles framework come under major non-conformance.
