What is ISO 22000?

ISO 22000 for food safety management systems requires organizations to adopt a risk-based approach to food safety.

Based on the same higher-level structure followed by all ISO management system standards, ISO 22000 combines the principles of ISO 9001 for quality management systems and Risk Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) with internationally recognized industry mandatory programs.


ISO 22000 defines food safety requirements for organizations in the food and beverage production chain to address and subsequently implement a food safety management system by identifying, evaluating and controlling potential food safety hazards.
