What is it?
PAS 220 outlines requirements for controlling food safety hazards in food manufacturing environments. The specification must be used in conjunction with BS EN ISO 22000, which gives recommendations on specific food safety measures for all organizations in a food supply chain. PAS 220 applies to management systems designed to help food manufacturing organizations of all sizes meet the BS EN ISO 22000 standard. It provides detailed guidelines on how to design and implement relevant food safety management systems. PAS 220 only applies to food manufacturers in the supply chain. It supports but does not replace BS EN ISO 22000.
How does it work?
PAS 220 provides food safety requirements for food manufacturers of all sizes and does not provide guidance to specific types of food manufacturing. The specification includes recommendations for the following: construction and layout of facilities; energy and water supply; waste disposal; cleaning and maintaining equipment; preventing cross contamination; and pest control. PAS 220 also provides guidance on correct product recall procedures and responding to bioterrorism. Using the specification will improve supplier relations and your reputation within the food industry.
