Food safety management

The consequences of unsafe food can be serious and ISO’s food safety management  standards help organizations identify and control food safety hazards. As many of today's food products  repeatedly cross national boundaries, International Standards are needed to ensure the safety of the  global food supply chain.

ISO 22000:2005 sets out the requirements for a food safety  management system and can be certified to. It maps out what an organization needs to do to demonstrate  its ability to control food safety hazards in order to ensure that food is safe. It can be used by any  organization regardless of its size or position in the food chain.
