The ISO 22000 Standards addresses food quality and safety management. It requires from organizations and companies to exhibit a proven ability to identify and control all potential safety hazards along the food supply chain and ensure that consumers receive food that is safe and edible.
The HACCP standard model defines activities and critical control points (CCPs) for preventing the occurrence of these hazards. The activities include a process analysis for identifying the potential hazards that could affect the safety of the food produced or stored by the organization. The defined CCPs and actions aim to prevent the arrival of unsafe food to the markets and to the consumers.
For each of our customers, our consultants adapt and implement a quality system that includes the following:
In organizations that already have a quality system, we adapt it to comply with the International Food Safety Management Standard, creating a combined and integrated quality system. In addition to improving and enhancing the organizational culture, we conduct internal audits and management reviews that comply with the standard’s requirements. All these activities are an integral part of the preparation towards the certification audit.
Safety management systems that comply with ISO 22000/ FSSC22000/ HACCP standards significantly benefit the organization:
Our certification consulting services begin with us meeting the organization’s key position holders. The aim of this meeting is to learn as much as possible about the organization and its processes. We then define and develop work processes, procedures, guidelines and forms. Together with your managers, we also identify the binding rules and regulations, and map out the possible food safety hazards. Once the work procedures are approved by the organization’s management, we assist to implement them, through trainings, internal audits, management reviews, etc. – as necessary. At the end of this process, your organization will pass the certification audit, conducted by a certified, objective third-party.
