ISO 22000:2018 - Understanding the Requirements (incl. Internal Auditing)

Programme Coordinator: Lulanie Swanepoel
Course Level
Implementation
Duration
Four Days
OVERVIEW & OBJECTIVES

The internationally-recognised ISO 22000 food safety management system enables companies to plan, implement, operate, maintain and update their food-safety management systems to ensure safe products.

The general misconception is that ISO 22000 is a combination of HACCP and ISO 9001. This, however, is not the case as ISO 22000 is a standard (with the emphasis on food safety throughout the food chain) that contains certain ISO 9001 standard elements. The course addresses practical implementation of a food-safety management system and includes compiling internal audit documentation and conducting internal audits.

Course Objectives

  • Plan the implementation process of the ISO 22000 system
  • Appoint a food-safety team and implement an ISO 22000 system
  • Compile the required documentation and record applicable information
  • Approach all aspects of food safety in a systematic and logical way
