What is  Food Safety Management System?

ISO 22000:2018 – Food Safety Management Systems – FSMS is a Management Systems certification for organisations involved in the production, processing, packaging and transport or distribution of food products.

ISO 22000 integrates the principles of HACCP developed by the Codex, Alimentarius Commission and described in Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point - HACCP System and Guidelines for its Application, with prerequisite programs (PRPs), into an auditable management system standard.
