The ISO 22000 standard is the first international standard for implementation of a certified food safety management system. It covers Interactive communication, System Management, and Hazard control.
Many standards have been developed within food safety: specific company standards, legal regulations, as well as standards developed by retailers. Their proliferation made their application difficult. At the same time, food safety principles have spread across the world. The safety of foodstuffs has become a major issue for all players in the food supply chain.
ISO 22000 is a single standard with worldwide reach, addressing all food safety principles. It has thus become necessary for all players in the food supply chain.
