Serving as a general derivative of ISO 9000, ISO 22000 is a standard developed by the International Organization for Standardization dealing with food safety. It specifies the requirements for a food safety management system composed of interactive communication, system management, prerequisite programs and HACCP principles.
Although ISO 22000 does not have specific requirements for prerequisite programs, it does require a documented system in place which includes:
- Effective Prerequisite Programs to ensure a clean sanitary environment.
- A Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Plan developed to identify, prevent and eliminate food safety hazards
- Established documented food safety management system processes to manage food safety throughout the organization.
