What is ISO 22000 Certification – Food Safety Management System?
ISO 22000:2005 – Food safety management systems
Food safety management system provide organizations an ability to control food safety hazards to ensure that food is safe for humans during the consumption. ISO 22000 is a standard that specifies requirements for an organization to have a process control system designed to improve the quality of the food they manufacture, processes, distribute and import. The process controls will identify, evaluate and control the food safety hazards in terms of physical, chemical, microbiological and other hazards in manufacturing/production or as well as entire food chain.
HACCP guidelines complement ISO 22000. When aligned, the designed process prevents problems before the occurrence and the deviations are detected and corrected in a systematic manner. These preventive controls and documented evidences are verified by recognized scientific authorities and certification organizations to produce food safe to consume.
A robust FSMS enable organization to implement HACCP principles by lowering risks and ensuring the food hazard is in acceptable limits. The focussed FSMS enables organization to have acceptable deviations at all the control points and critical control points at minimum by continuous monitoring and measurement.
ISO 22000:2005 aligned with FSMS provides a flexibility to bring a tailored solution in food safety depending on wide segments in the food industry influencing both customer and suppliers.
