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