ISO 22000: Food Safety Management Systems (FSMS)
What Is ISO 22000 Food Safety Management Systems Accreditation?
Food safety relates to the presence of food-borne hazards in food at the point of consumption. Because food safety hazards can be introduced at any stage of the food chain, adequate control throughout the food chain is essential. ISO 22000 specifies requirements for a food safety management system that combines interactive communication, system management, prerequisite program, and HACCP principles to ensure food safety along the food chain.
ISO 22000 is a base standard program in ANAB’s fee schedule.
Please refer to the information about the accreditation process at How to Become an ANAB-Accredited Certification Body.
You can view the ISO 22000 application in .pdf format to understand specific requirements but the application process must be completed online via ANAB’s EQM database; first-time EQM users must register to create an account.
