Key changes from ISO 22000: 2005 to ISO 22000: 2018

ISO 22000:2018 the revised food safety standard was published on 19th June 2018, but what are the changes?

ISO 22000:2005, the international food safety standard that specifies the requirements to ensure safe production within the entire food chain, from farm to fork, has now been revised and updated and ISO 22000:2018 has been released.

The objective of this update has been to harmonize the scheme with other standards following the ISO high level structure. Anyone currently certified to ISO 22000:2005 will have 3 years to transition over to the new standard.

  • High level structure

    ISO 22000 has implemented the High Level Structure (HLS) with 10 clauses like other ISO standards such as ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and the recently released ISO 45001. This now facilitates the integration of these management systems for those organizations that use them all.

  • Risk Based approach

    The standard has now a strong connection with the food hygiene principles of Codex Alimentarius and a new approach to risk in two different levels, the organizational (strategic direction of the business) and the operational level.

  • PDCA Cycle

    Two different Plan-Do-Check-Act cycles work together in this new version, one through the entire food safety management system and the other at the operations level that simultaneously covers the HACCP principles.

  • Operation Process

    New definitions have been added and also critical terms such as CCPs, OPRPs and PRPs have been revised and are now clearer. Control measures are now categorized to be managed as Operational Prerequisite Programmes (OPRPs) or as Critical Control Points (CCPs). These measures are now related only to significant hazards and not managed at a Prerequisite Programmes (PRPs) level. The approach to identify each category is now different. Control measures managed as OPRPs have measurable action criteria while those managed at CCPs have only measurable critical limits that enable timely correction.

Transition from ISO 22000:2005 to ISO 22000:2018

The revised Food Safety Management System of ISO 22000 has been published on June 19, 2018 marking the start of 3 year transition period (until June 19 2021) for all certified companies i.e. with this release, ISO 22000:2005 will be withdrawn from consideration.

So, if you are certified to the ISO 22000:2005 standard, you will have migrate to ISO 22000:2018 until June 19, 2021 in order to maintain the validity of certification. Hence, we recommend you to start your transition preparation as soon as possible to incorporate all needed changes into your existing management system and stand out at a global level.
