    The ISO 22000:2018 food safety management system standard is applicable to all types of organizations involved in any aspect of the food chain, regardless of size.

    • Planning, implementing, operating, maintaining and updating an appropriate food safety management system that makes food safe for the consumer
    • Consumer requirements are evaluated, assessed and demonstrated through conformity with the appropriate requirements
    • Food safety issues are effectively communicated to suppliers, customers and other relevant interested parties in the food chain
    • Conformity with its own stated food safety policy


    Showing compliance with the requirements of ISO 22000:2018 can be accomplished through the use of internal and/or external resources.
