ISO 22000:2018 (FSMS)
FOOD SAFETY MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS
Food Safety Management Systems are effectively reinforced to ensure the safety of your food products. If something does go wrong, it results in a timely control on hazards that can end up making or breaking your business.
Food safety management system (FSMS) is directly or indirectly involved in the food chain supply:
All requirements of this document are generic and will be applicable to all organizations in the food chain, regardless of size and complexity. Organizations that are directly or indirectly involved include, but are not limited to, feed producers, animal food producers, harvesters of wild plants and animals, farmers, producers of ingredients, food manufacturers, retailers, and organizations providing food services, catering services, cleaning and sanitation services, transportation, packaging materials and other food contact materials.
This standard incorporates and complements the main elements of ISO 9001, the standard for quality management systems, as well as hazard analysis and critical control points (HACCP), a preventive approach to food safety. ISO 22716 is a standard for producing food. One aspect of the ISO 22716 standard is that it helps organizations develop, implement, monitor and continually improve a food safety management system within the context of their business. The ISO 22716 Standard helps businesses to produce food safely in accordance with not only the organization’s statutory and regulatory requirements but also in accordance with its own policies.
