The ISO 22000 Standard


ISO 22000 specifies the requirements for a food safety management system that an organization must fulfil to demonstrate its ability to consistently produce food products which are safe for their end consumers. ISO 22000 integrates the principles of the Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) system by means of auditable requirements that it combines the HACCP plan with prerequisite programmes. ISO 22000 requires that all hazards that may be reasonably expected to occur in the food chain, including hazards that may be associated with the type of process and facilities used, are identified and assessed. Therefore it provides the means to determine the strategy to be used to ensure hazard control by combining the prerequisite programmes and the HACCP plan.

The Principles of ISO 2200

The ISO 22000 International Standard specifies the requirements for operating an effective Food Safety Management System that combines generally recognized key elements to ensure food safety along the food chain as follows:-

  1. Provides interactive communication: Clear communication along the food chain (with customers and suppliers) is essential to ensure that all relevant food safety hazards are identified and adequately controlled at each step.
  2. Systems management: The most effective food safety systems are designed, operated and updated within the framework of a structured management system and incorporated into the overall management activities of the organization. This provides maximum benefit for the organization and interested parties.
  3. Prerequisite programs: Production of safe products requires a detailed HACCP plan and the integration of two categories of prerequisite programmes under infrastructure and maintenance programmes to address basic hygiene requirements and practices; and operational prerequisite programmes to control identified food safety hazards.
  4. HACCP principles: ISO 22000 complies with the Codex Alimentarius HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points) principles and application steps, developed by Codex Alimentarius, with prerequisite programmes. It uses the hazard analysis to determine the strategy for hazard control. HACCP is also designed for use in all areas of the food industry (from primary production of growing, harvesting, processing, manufacturing, distributing, and merchandising to fi nal food consumption) as it includes adopting steps to prevent problems before they occur and correct variations upon detection. Both HACCP and ISO 22000 system are able to be aligned with ISO 9001 (Quality Management System) to ease integrated implementation.

The Benefits of ISO 22000

  1. Increase awareness of food safety hazards
  2. Proper documentation and record keeping and enhance internal and external communication
  3. Demonstrate organization’s commitment to food safety thus boosting confidence in stakeholders

What is OHSAS 18001


The OHSAS 18001 Standard

OHSAS 18001 was developed to help organisations meet their health and safety obligations in a competent and successful behaviour through controlling the potential hazards within an organisation. Despite not being an ISO standard, OHSAS 18001 has been developed to be mutually compatible with the ISO 9001 (Quality Management System) and ISO 14001 (Environmental Management System) standards, thus facilitating the achieving of a 3-in-1 integrated management system strategy for organisations.

The Principles of OHSAS 18001 

The OHSAS 18001 standard is based on the Plan-Do-Check-Act methodology, with an emphasis on continual improvement. The following steps form the basic structure of the management system and
link into the structure of OHSAS 18001.

  • Plan: Identify and establish the objectives and processes necessary to deliver results in accordance with the organization’s OH&S policy.
  • Do: Implement the processes for the Health and Safety Management System.
  • Check: Monitor and measure processes of the management system against OH&S policy, objectives, legal and other requirements, and report the results or take any necessary corrective action.
  • Act: Evaluate and take actions to continually improve the effectiveness and applicability of OH&S performance.

The BENEFITS of OHSAS 18001 

  • Gain competitive advantages in the global market
  • Enhance health and safety working environment
  • Enhance company image and brand reputation
  • Continual improvement of organisational performance
  • Encourage organisations to improve working environment with ensured health and safety for employees
  • Demonstrate your commitment to health and safety towards company’s stakeholders
