Food Safety Management System

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 is a Generic Food Safety Management System Standard. It defines a set of general food safety requirements that apply to all organizations in the food chain. If your organization is part of the food chain, ISO 22000 wants you to establish a Food Safety Management System (FSMS). It then wants you to use this system to ensure that food products do not cause adverse human health effects.

ISO 22000:2015 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.

This document specifies requirements for a Food Safety Management System (FSMS) to enable an organization that is directly or indirectly involved in the food chain:

a) To plan, implement, operate, maintain and update a FSMS providing products and services that are safe, in accordance with their intended use;
b) To demonstrate compliance with applicable statutory and regulatory food safety requirements;
c) To evaluate and assess mutually agreed customer food safety requirements and to demonstrate conformity with them;
d) To effectively communicate food safety issues to interested parties within the food chain;
e) To ensure that the organization conforms to its stated food safety policy;
f) To demonstrate conformity to relevant interested parties;
g) To seek certification or registration of its FSMS by an external organization, or make a self-assessment or self-declaration of conformity to this document.


All requirements of this document are generic and are intended to be applicable to all organizations in the food chain, regardless of size and complexity. Organizations that are directly or indirectly involved include, but are not limited to, feed producers, animal food producers, harvesters of wild plants and animals, farmers, producers of ingredients, food manufacturers, retailers, and organizations providing food services, catering services, cleaning and sanitation services, transportation, storage and distribution services, suppliers of equipment, cleaning and disinfectants, packaging materials and other food contact materials.
