New ISO 22000        

ISO 22000:2018 International management standard, with the principles of food safety as a reference.

In any organisation, understanding and managing all operations as a system contributes to achieving effectiveness, efficiency, and the intended results. If a company implements a food safety management system (FSMS) based on ISO 22000:2018 it will achieve: 

  • Adopt the High Level Structure (HLS) common to all ISO standards, which allows integration with other management systems.
  • Apply a process-based approach, which allows planning these processes and their interactions.
  • Implement a PDCA cycle of continuous improvement throughout the system and another to ensure that the entire production chain is properly resourced and managed, identifying opportunities for improvement and acting on them.
  • Manage based on potential risks, to identify factors that could cause your processes and your EMS to deviate from planned outcomes, and establish controls to prevent or minimise adverse effects.
