Overview of ISO 22000:2018

This first part introduces ISO 22000, explaining what it is, how it's used, and the purpose and benefits of a Food Safety Management System (FSMS).

Requirements of an FSMS

This module takes a step-by-step look at the relevant clauses in the ISO 22000:2018 standard in order to understand what they mean and what your company needs to do to comply with them.

Documented Information

Clear, well-written, and non-bureaucratic documentation is an important part of an ISO 22000 FSMS.

A point worth noting here is that documents are used for storing and sharing information, while records are essentially hard copies of results (such as from an audit) or evidence of activities that have been performed. And while documents get revised from to time and are generally kept up-to-date, records are static and never revised.

Internal Auditing

This part introduces auditing techniques, including the fundamentals (audit methodologies), and the roles and responsibilities expected from a company's internal auditor.

  • Internal Auditing Basics
  • Audit Types
  • Roles and Responsibilities

Audit Records

Audit proceedings and findings must be documented according to ISO's specific requirements. The reports you compile (which show nonconformities and the corrective actions taken to address them) must be retained as they will be reviewed during the certification audit and subsequent surveillance audits. Points covered in this module include:

  • Audit Preparation
  • Conducting an Audit
  • Audit Reporting
  • Audit Completion and Follow-Up


This module covers HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point), an internationally-recognized system for minimizing or eliminating food safety hazards.

Implementation and Certification

This final part examines the steps necessary to implement an effective ISO 22000 FSMS and achieve certification.

Who Should Take ISO 22000:2018 Auditor Training?
