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.

ISO 22000:2018 Principles

This part introduces the seven principles of ISO 22000:

  • Customer Focus
    The organization must demonstrate its commitment to quality by cultivating a strong customer focus, and by striving to meet and exceed customer needs.
  • Leadership
    Endorse strong leadership that communicates the organization's vision and objectives.
  • Engagement of People
    Engage and empower people at all levels of the organization. The organization should cultivate a work environment in which frank, open communication is welcomed and employees are valued and encouraged to thrive.
  • Process Approach
    An ISO 22000 system typically consists of several different processes working together. Organizations need to make sure that designated people understand these processes and their expected outcomes.
  • Improvement
    Continual improvement is a key component of ISO 22000 and a core objective of an organization's FSMS.
  • Evidence-Based Decision Making
    Decisions based on the analysis and evaluation of reliable data are more likely to produce desired outcomes.
  • Relationship Management
    Develop mutually beneficial relationships with interested parties, including suppliers, partners, customers, and other stakeholders.

Overview of HACCP

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

ISO 22000 Requirements

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 a Food Safety Management System.

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.

Risk Management

Risk management is a broad topic since it can include factors as diverse as pest control, prevention of cross-contamination, cleaning and sanitizing, waste disposal, and procedures for product recall.

In addition, many risks are sector-specific, meaning that a catering company's risk management strategy will be very different to companies that manufacture animal feed or provide food packaging services.

Certification Steps

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

Who Should Take ISO 22000:2018 Implementer Training?

This course is ideal for:

  • Staff responsible for managing the company's implementation project, setting up a sustainable FSMS that meets ISO 22000 requirements, and achieving certification.

  • Consultants who want to learn how to implement ISO 22000 Food Safety Management Systems and gain the associated professional certification.
