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.
