ISO 22000:2005 (Food Safety Management System)

What is HACCP / ISO 22000 (FSMS)?

Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) / ISO 22000 Food Safety Management System is a process control system designed to identify and prevent microbial and other hazards in food production and entire food chain. HACCP includes steps designed to prevent problems before they occur and to correct deviations through a systematic way as soon as they are detected.

Such preventive control systems with documentation and verification are widely recognized by scientific authorities and international organizations as the most effective approach available for producing safe food.

HACCP / ISO 22000 enables the producers, processors, distributors, exporters, etc, of food products to utilize technical resources efficiently and in a cost effective manner in assuring food safety.

The ISO 22000:2005 standard outlines Food Safety Management System Requirements for any organization in the food chain, and is one of a family of standards focused at the development, implementation and improvement of a food safety management system.

The ISO 9001:2008 standard (Quality Management System) is based on the principal of establishing a process depended and an effectively controlled management system with a strong focus on customerís satisfaction. The effectively controlled processes leads to effectively controlled system which is achieved through a PDCA cycle ie. Plan, Do, Check and Act.

ISO 22000:2005 standard has been established on the guidelines similar to that of HACCP standard.

Who should use ISO 22000:2005?

Since ISO 22000 is a generic food safety management standard it can be used by any organization directly or indirectly involved in the food chain including- Farms, Fisheries and Dairies, Processors of Meats, Fish and Feed, including Manufacturers of soups, snacks, bread, cereal, beverages, canned and frozen food, etc as well as food service providers such as restaurants, fast food chains, hospitals and hotels.

Supporting services should not be forgotten and providers of food transportation storage and distribution, catering services as well as product suppliers for equipment, additives, raw materials, cleaning and sanitizing products, packaging. In short if your products touch the food industry or the food we eat, part or all of the ISO 22000 requirements will apply.

Other Food Safety Management Certifications:

Today we have various internationally accepted standards to choose from depending on the type of food or food processing for example

  1. .FSSC 22000
  2. .BRC-Food
  3. .BRC- Packing
  4. .HACCP
  5. .Global Gap
  6. .SQF and
  7. .KOSHER etc.

These standards help us to control the food processing and achieve compliance to the product requirements.

The HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point) certificate is awarded to the organization showing compliance to the HACCP standard during certification audit. Hazard analysis is done to identify the associated critical control points within the food processing while implementing the HACCP standard. An effectively controlled process dependent quality management system is an ideal platform to establish, maintain, monitor and manage the system.

HACCP Principles

The standard approach to HACCP is that specified by the Codex Alimentarius, 1997, and follows 7 basic principles:

1. Conduct a hazard analysis.

2. Determine the critical control points.

3. Establish critical limits.

4. Establish a system to monitor control of the CCP.

5. Establish the corrective action to be taken when monitoring indicates that a particular CCP is not under control.

6. Establish procedures for verification to confirm that the HACCP system is under control.

7. Establish documentation concerning all procedures and records appropriate to these principles and their application.
