Food Safety in production
The internationally recognized standard ISO 22000 is applicable to all organizations, regardless of their size and complexity, who are directly or indirectly involved in the production of foodstuffs and who want to demonstrate their conformity to HACCP e.g. according to the Codex Alimentarius by way of an objective and competent assessment. The standard in particular addresses organizations that aim for a goal-oriented, coherent, and more integrated management system for food safety, above and beyond the usual legal requirements.
ISO 22000 is a globally harmonized and process oriented standard for food safety that may be applied by any organization in the food supply chain, to include the provision of raw materials and transportation. The standard specifies minimum requirements for corporate risk management; in addition to HACCP according to the Codex Alimentarius, it is also necessary to demonstrate fulfillment of the requirements of Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP), and the implementation of preventive programs
