THE JOURNEY TO ACHIEVING ISO 22000:2018 CERTIFICATION HAS JUST BEGAN!

 

On 19th June 2018, the much-awaited revised version of ISO 22000 was published. This new version brings with it some new information and requirements. 

In this forum, we will try to summarize some of the new information and requirements:

a)   High Level Structure (HLS): the current standard has adopted the ISO HLS to improve alignment between ISO management system standards. Why is this important? Simple, to permit ease of system integration.

At Warisco Consulting Services, we have assisted several clients to integrate their systems. If your organization currently run other ISO systems like ISO 9001:2015, ISO 14001:2015 or GMP, we can support you as you integrate your existing systems with this new standard and streamline your system management.

ISO 22000-2018 VERSION-1

 

 

b)   Risk-based thinking: has been adopted and is addressed on two levels; organizational and operational. We have in-depth understanding of what is required hereContact us!

 

c)   Plan-Do-Check-Act cycle:  Equally addressed on two levels; organizational and operational. Our experts understand how to do this. Contact us! 

 

d)    Implementation of PRPs. Clause 8.2.3 of this new standard now require organizations to consider relevant Sector Specific Technical Specification (ISO/TS 22002): We will work and take your team through the relevant ISO/TS 22002. This is a journey we have covered with other GFSI recognised schemes. Our expertise is unrivalled here. Contact Us and let’s chart the way forward!

 

e)   Understanding the organization and its context: We will help your organization understand internal and external issues that are relevant to their purpose including food defense and food fraud and how to implement these. We have well developed tools and done this successfully!

Intentional vis-a-vis unintentional food contamination

Intentional and unintentional food contamination! what is the difference? or do they mean the same thing?

 

There is a misconception that organizations certified to food safety management systems are able to manage both intentional and unintentional food contamination. This is not true hence the need to understand the differences between these terminologies and how to mitigate risks that are associate with each category.

 

Our food defense and food safety courses bring into perspective the differences between the two concepts and how to mitigate the risks that are associated with intentional contamination and those that are associated with unintentional contamination.
