ISO 22000

A feed and food safety management system enables companies to provide trust to customers and consumers about the corporate capability to manage the food safety related risks.

The ISO22000 standard has been developed within ISO by experts from the food industry along with representatives of specialized international organizations and in close cooperation with the Codex Alimentarius Commission, the body jointly established by the United Nations' Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and World Health Organization (WHO) to develop food standards.

Food Safety Management System is a risk management tool specifically designed for the food industry in order to assure food safety. It specifies requirements for food safety, where an organization in the food chain needs to demonstrate its ability to control food safety hazards in order to ensure that food is safe at the time of human consumption.

ISO22000 is designed to allow all types of organizations within the food chain to implement a food safety management system. These range from feed producers, primary producers, food manufacturers, transport and storage operators and subcontractors to retail and food service outlets together with related organizations such as producers of equipment, packaging material, cleaning agents, additives and ingredients.

Another benefit of ISO22000 is that it extends the successful management system approach of the ISO9001quality management system with Hazard Analysis process & Critical Controls, and plans in order to provide safe food.

Adoption to these standards changes the concerned company's approach from retroactive quality testing to a preventive work culture. Companies face strong requirements from legislators, customers and consumers to assure consistently safe production processes. A commitment to conscious risk management will be one of the main competitive advantages.ICR employs food technologists and experts of food chain, who are experienced and have undergone typical in-house and external HACCP training and ISO22000 training, as assessors. The process approach auditing of ICR minimizes the risk of system lapses and enhances customer and public confidence in the management system of organizations.
