ISO 22000

Food Safety Management

ISO 22000 is an international standard suitable for the entire food chain business, including equipment production, material packaging, detergents, additives and raw materials.

ISO 22000 is a standard in which the main contents of ISO 9001 and HACCP are mixed and supplemented, thereby providing an effective framework for the development, implementation and continuous improvement of the Food Safety Management System (FSMS).

With the revision of ISO 22000 in June 2018, the existing ISO 22000:2005 certificates will expire on June 1, 2021. The organizations certified to ISO 22000:2005 must complete the transition to ISO 22000:2018 before the expiration date, and all initial and re-certification organizations must be certified to ISO 22000:2018 after June 2020.


Major changes to ISO 22000:2018 are as follows:

✥ Stronger emphasis on leadership responsibilities

✥ Applying a risk-based approach to developing a food safety management system

✥ Clarification of key concepts including:

‣Plan-Do-Check-Act cycle has two separate cycles: one that deals with the management system and one that deals with the HACCP principles, working together within this standard


‣Differentiation of key terms including Critical Control Points (CCPs), Operational Prerequisite Programs (Operational PRPs), and Prerequisite Programs (PRPs)

✥ Improved versatility with other ISO management systems through content relocation of standards with high-level structure structures


  • ISO 22000:2018 Requirements, image
    ISO 22000:2018 Requirements ISO 22000:2018 applies a high-level structure that is applied to standards such as ISO 9001:2015 and can be managed by integrating with other standards. In addition, the clarity and applicability of the standard are improved with consistent use of structure, definitions, and terminology.

  • The importance of ISO 22000, image
    The importance of ISO 22000 IISO 22000 integrates the principles and application stages of the Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) system developed by the International Food Standards Committee.

    This standard requires the identification and evaluation of all expected hazards in the food chain, including hazards that may be associated with process forms and facilities. Therefore, ISO 22000 helps to distinguish between identified hazards that need and don’t need to be managed and provide a means for documentation.

    This standard helps you as the following things:

    1. Establishment of effective FSMS management measures and minimization of risks in the implementation process

    2. Secure reliability of the organization

    3. Improving employees' sense of responsibility

    4. Improving the sustainability of the business

    This standard is applicable to all organizations directly or indirectly involved in the food chain, including the follows:

    1. The producers of feed, animal food, and ingredients

    2. The harvesters of wild plants and animals, farmers

    3. Manufacturers and retailers of food

    4. The organization providing food services including restaurants, fast food franchises, hospitals, hotels, and catering

    5. Storage and Distribution services, suppliers of equipment, additives, raw materials, cleaning and disinfectants, and packaging materials

FSSC 22000

Food Safety System Certification

The FSSC 22000 (Food Safety System Certification) standard is a food safety standard approved by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI), the most influential food manufacturers, to introduce a food safety certification system suitable for the overall food industry.

As the world population grows, the demand for cheap, safe and high-quality food is increasing. To meet these needs, FSSC 22000 provides a reliable food safety platform to the food industry. The FSSC 22000 is based on ISO 22000, a combination of Sector Prerequisite Programs (PRPs) and additional FSSC 22000 requirements for suppliers of food products and their ingredients.

It applies to all food manufacturers, regardless of the size, complexity or location of the organization. In addition, storage at transport and production sites are included in the scope of certification.

FDA FSMA

FDA Food Safety Modernization Act

FSMA (Food Safety Modernization Act)

On January 4, 2011, the US government enacted the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) for the purpose of protecting the safety of food supply and national health through prevention in advance. As a result, the FDA can focus on preventing food safety problems by establishing FSMA.

FSMA applies to facilities that manufacture, process, package or store food or feed. Also, companies that send food to the United States, such as producers, US importers, shippers, recipients, shippers, and transporters, must comply with FSMA. Therefore, according to FSMA, companies need to establish a food safety system that includes preventive management based on hazard analysis and prepare a documented food safety plan.

Global HACCP

Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points

Codex Alimentarius Commission (CODEX) has presented guidelines for the application of HACCP and has applied HACCP in accordance with these guidelines worldwide.

HACCP is a management system that deals with food safety through analysis and control of biological, chemical and physical risks from raw material production, procurement and handling to finished product manufacturing and distribution, and consumption.

HACCP-based systems are legal requirements in the United States and several countries including EU, in all but primary production.

Demonstrating the true commitment to food safety through HACCP compliance opens up new business opportunities around the world by acting as an effective market enabler.
