ISO 22000 Food Safety Management Certification

The globally recognised ISO 22000 provides a framework for management of food safety and quality responsibilities.

Risks associated with the entire food logistics chain represent a serious challenge for all organisations within the food industry.

Gaining an ISO 22000 Food Safety Management System Certification allows your organisation to demonstrate that you actively value the importance of safe food management and have achieved internationally recognised standards.


ISO 22000 ensures hazards and risks are identified and dealt with effectively within organisations and across the entire food industry.

QMS will independently assess your food safety management systems to ensure your organisation meets the standards outlined in ISO 22000. As part of this process, your business will need to demonstrate:

  • Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) systems
  • Effective communication internally throughout your organisation regarding food safety management
  • Comprehensive systems in place for food safety management
  • Prerequisite programs

Certification process

A typical process for ISO standard certification would include the following process:

  • Your organisation develops an understanding of what the standard is designed to achieve and how it will fit into your current operations
  • Gaps are identified between existing systems and ISO standards
  • The internal processes planned by your organisation are documented
  • The plan is implemented throughout your organisation
  • An independent assessment is carried out
  • An ongoing plan for improvement is maintained within your organisation

QMS can expertly guide you through all these elements of ISO 22000 certification.
