What is ISO 22000?
The overall aim of ISO 22000 is to harmonize food safety management requirements on a global level for organizations within the food chain.
ISO 22000 is a global FSMS standard for the whole food supply chain—incorporating everything from growers and producers to processors and packaging, transport, and point of sale. The standard also extends to include suppliers of non-food products and services such as cleaning and equipment manufacturers. It can be implemented by organizations of any size.
ISO 22000 specifies the requirements for a FSMS that involves interactive communication, system management, and prerequisite programs.
The standard focuses on supply chain assurance, including management system principles, and is aligned with the hazard analysis critical control point (HACCP) principles of Codex Alimentarius, a collection of internationally recognized standards, codes of practice, guidelines, and other recommendations relating to foods, food production, and food safety.
What is ISO 9001?
ISO 9001:2015 sets out the criteria for a quality management system.
This standard is based on a number of quality management principles including a strong customer focus, the motivation and implication of top management, the process approach and continual improvement. Using ISO 9001:2015 helps ensure that customers get consistent, good quality products and services, which in turn brings many business benefits.
The seven quality management principles are:
QMP 1 – Customer focus
QMP 2 – Leadership
QMP 3 – Engagement of people
QMP 4 – Process approach
QMP 5 – Improvement
QMP 6 – Evidence-based decision making
QMP 7 – Relationship management
