ISO 22000 Food Safety Management System (FSMS)

What is ISO 22000?

ISO 22000 is the internationally recognised Food Safety Management System (FSMS). It applies to all organisations in the food chain and helps ensure the quality, safety and reliability of products from ‘farm to fork’. So, it’s equally applicable to farmers and primary producers, processors, manufacturers, distributors, wholesalers and retailers.

It’s a framework that combines prerequisite programs, the HACCP principles and application steps as described by the Codex Alimentarius Commission and elements of the ISO 9001 Quality Management Systems standard.

Why Seek ISO 22000 Certification?

If you operate in the food industry, you’re required by law to comply with established hygiene regulations in accordance with HACCP guidelines.

ISO 22000 is based on HACCP guidelines. However, whereas HACCP focuses purely on food safety, ISO 22000 looks at broader business processes and structures. This brings additional benefits to your business.

Therefore, whilst HACCP is mandatory, ISO 22000 is discretionary unless required by your clients or other stakeholders.

Make Sure Your ISO 22000 Certificate is UKAS Accredited

Not all certificates are equal. You need to make sure your certificate is issued by a body that has been accredited by the government-recognised United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS).

A UKAS accredited certification body like ISOQAR undergoes regular rigorous inspections by UKAS to check we are operating to the highest standards.

This means that when you hold a certificate from a UKAS accredited body, you can be sure it’s more meaningful. Certificates that are issued by bodies which are not UKAS accredited are often not accepted.

UKAS accredited certificates are accepted across the world as evidence that you meet global standards of best practice.
