UNE-EN ISO 22000:2018 Food safety management systems

ISO 22000 is the ideal tool for those companies that want to integrate their Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) system with the requirements of UNE-EN ISO 9001: 2015.

UNE-EN ISO 22000: 2018 “Food safety management systems” is the international standard that defines the requirements that a food safety management system must satisfy.

Although it is a standard initially designed for the food sector has been successfully applied in other sectors where the analysis of risks and dangers and the determination of critical control points are essential tools (e.g. cosmetic, pharmaceutical industry).

Its application can bring benefits to the organisation:

  • Regulatory and legislative compliance,
  • Improvement and further establishment of the Hazard Analysis System and Critical Control Points (HACCP),
  • Entry into new markets and customers (e.g.distribution chains),
  • By allowing integration with ISO 9001 or other ISO standards, it improves the definition of responsibilities, the determination of company processes and risk management,
  • Integration with BRC Global Standard Food or IFS International Food Standard systems,
  • Improvement of the image of the company at the final consumer level.

Most of the distribution chains require certifications through quality standards to be able to supply for the private label, the brand owned by the retail food distribution (retailers) or wholesale (wholesaler). Undoubtedly the perfect knowledge of the mechanisms facilitates the achievement of the project.

The principal distributors worldwide value positively products that, in addition to excellent organoleptic quality, can prove adequate hygienic and sanitary production conditions.

The principal certifying bodies (Aenor, Bureau veritas, BSI, Lloyds Register, OCA global, Applus, among others) have determined guidelines for this standard. All of them have demonstrated to ENAC their competence and impartiality to provide the ISO 22000 certification service.

The application of the UNE-EN ISO 22000 food safety standard can sometimes be complicated in an organisation. It is essential to know the standard, the HACCP systems and factors such as implementation/establishment or management before the certification bodies also intervene.
