Standard ISO 22000

ISO 22000 establishes requirements for the management system of organizations involved in the food production and consumption chain to demonstrate their ability to control food safety risks and ensure that the end products, according to their purpose, are safe for consumers.

The food safety management system built on the basis of the requirements of this standard will allow your organization:

  1. 1. Identify and evaluate all hazards that may potentially occur in the food production chain, including hazards associated with the type of process and equipment used;
  2. 2. efficiently exchange information with suppliers, consumers and other stakeholders (from agricultural producers to food producers, food laboratories, supervisors, etc.) in the food chain;
  3. 3. comply with applicable legal and regulatory requirements for food safety and agreed consumer requirements.

The international standard ISO 22000 is designed for harmonious sharing with ISO 9001. In addition, the standard integrates the principles of the HACCP system and the application stages developed by the Codex Alimentarius Commission (CAC / RCP 1-1969). Demonstration of the organization’s ability to meet the requirements of the ISO 22000 standard can be confirmed by passing the certification procedure and obtaining a certificate of compliance from independent competent and authorized international and national authorities.


Scope of the ISO 22000 standard The ISO 22000 standard is applicable to all organizations involved in any aspect of the food chain, regardless of their type, size and products. This includes, for example, feed producers, farmers, ingredient producers and food producers, food processing companies, catering companies, organizations involved in the cleaning, transportation, storage and distribution of food products.

Other organizations indirectly associated with the food chain (eg, suppliers of equipment, cleaning products, packaging materials and other materials in contact with food) can also effectively apply this standard.

Benefits of ISO 22000 food safety management system certification To date, food products at any stage of the chain of production and supply can not only move within the country, but also cross national borders. The application of the ISO 22000 standard, above all, will increase the credibility of your products, as it ensures the application of the same rules regarding the quality and safety of food products for organizations around the world.

The introduction of a food safety management system based on the requirements of ISO 22000 optimizes the management processes of your organization, which in turn allows you to not divide attention and resources into all possible hazards, and pay special attention only to individual stages (identified control critical points ( CCP)), which significantly affects the safety of products for consumers.

In addition, your organization, ensuring a stable quality of products, can receive significant financial savings by reducing the share of marriage and the number of complaints.

Thanks to the certification of the food safety management system according to the requirements of the ISO 22000 standard, your organization has the following advantages:

  • – the growth of consumer and regulatory authorities’ confidence, as well as the formation of the reputation of a manufacturer of quality and safe products;
  • – acquisition of a marketing tool to attract more loyal consumers and new business partners;
  • – elimination of barriers to trade in the European and international market and the problems of mutual recognition of the results of conformity assessment in the field of food safety;
  • – increase the competitiveness of the enterprise’s products due to the availability of a certificate recognized on international markets.
