Managing Food Safety the 22000 Way
David Smith, Rob Politowski and Christina Palmer
This practical guide to food safety management has been developed for organizations seeking user-friendly help in understanding and implementing a food safety management system to meet the requirements of the international standard ISO 22000:2005.
Managing Food Safety the 22000 Way takes a detailed look at the requirements of ISO 22000 Food safety management systems. Requirements for any organization in the food chain and is applicable along the complete food chain ‘from farm to fork’. A simple methodology is offered, coupled with extracts from the standard and clear explanations of the terms used. This book is designed to be used at a range of levels, either as a stand alone guide or in conjunction with the standard for a more detailed approach.
The straightforward methodology will be particularly helpful for those organizations which may be wishing to integrate an ISO 22000 system with their other management system requirements.
This guide follows a similar approach tot hat adopted in Managing Safety the Systems Way and Managing the Environment the 14001 Way and uses a combination of:
- ‘getting started’ section - often the most difficult stage for those with little in place.
- ‘overview’ sections - providing information on the major aspects of ISO 22000
- ‘checklists’ - providing a reference point to help identify how your organization compares with ISO 22000 and where you may need more detailed information
- ‘PDCA’ - Plan, Do, Check, Act approach which particularly lends itself to the Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) methodology.
The annexes provide useful information sources and include a self-assessment table.
