Latest Updates on ISO 22000:2018 Food Safety Management Systems

31/10/18

ISO has recently published the revised version of ISO 22000:2018 Food Safety Management Systems – Requirements for any organisation in the food chain. The ISO 22000 standard was the first international standard for implementation of a certified food safety management system. This new version replaces ISO 22000:2005 and organisations will have until 19 June 2021 to complete their transition.

This standard was revised to keep up to date with the food safety challenges faced along the supply chain and to provide a proactive way for organisations to address food health and safety concerns. Transitioning to ISO 22000:2018 improves risk management for food safety processes, and helps organisations prove that their products and services meet regulatory requirements.

The main changes to the standard are around the modification to the structure and clarification of key concepts:
-  High Level Structure (HLS) – to allow easier integration this standard will follow the Annex SL framework common to the most recent standards published by ISO (i.e. 9001, 14001, 45001, 55001, etc.)
-  Risk Based Thinking – risk approach to food safety (operational and business performance)
-  Continuous Improvement – the standard clarifies the Plan-Do-Check-Act cycle (one covering the Management System and one covering the principles of HACCP)
-  Operational Definitions – clear defined terms: Critical Control Points (CCPs), Operational Prerequisite Programmes (OPRPs) and Prerequisite Programmes (PRPs).

Bureau Veritas currently has over 2,500 clients certified to the 2005 standard and is number one in Food Testing in Australia. We highly encourage you to transition well ahead before the deadline to avoid any rush. Contact our certification experts today.
