ISO 22000 certification of the food safety management system is applicable to all types of businesses irrespective of size active in the entire food processing chain from farms, primary manufacturers, food manufacturers, transport suppliers, warehouses, industry, manufacturers of equipment, packaging, cleaning products and all food additives.
ISO 22000 is a standard that assists with controlling risks in the food processing industry to achieve food safety for human consumption.
This food safety standard was developed by professionals from the food industry and specialised organisations and in cooperation with the Codex Commission, UN (FAO) and WHO.
The ISO 22000 standard builds on benefits of the ISO 9001 quality management system and of the Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points management system (HACCP) and of the plans for provision of safe food.
Certified organisations can promote themselves as certificate holders in their promotional materials and can include the URS certification logo free of charge.
