ISO 22000 2005


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

International Standards provide a reference framework, or a common technological language, between suppliers and their customers - which facilitates trade and the transfer of technology. ISO 22000:2005 is an international standard related to Food Safety Management Systems (FSMS)

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.

This International Standard specifies the requirements for a food safety management system that combines the following generally recognized key elements to ensure food safety along the food chain, up to the point of final consumption:

  • Interactive communication;
  • System management;
  • Prerequisite programmes;
  • HACCP principles.
