ISO has launched a new CD that contains the ISO 22000 series of standards developed to help operators in the food chain to implement food safety management systems. The CD also includes related standards for conformity assessment professionals involved in the certification of food safety management systems and in the accreditation of bodies carrying out such certification.
ISO 22000:2005, which gives the requirements for a food safety management system, is implemented by more than 700 organizations in some 60 countries. It and the supporting standards in the series can be used by any type of organization in the food chain, ranging from feed producers, primary producers through food manufacturers, transport and storage operators, including also subcontractors to retail and food service outlets.
