What is the ISO 22000 norm?

ISO 22000 is an internationally valid norm for management systems for food safety. The norm ISO 22000 was introduced in September 2005, simultaneously with the European version EN ISO 22000.

ISO 22000 as a DIN norm

The international norm ISO 22000, as well as the DIN EN ISO 22000 were introduces in the year 2005. The DIN norm DIN EN ISO 22000 was changed a little bit in 2006. Since then, the norm is unrestrictedly valid.

Origin of the ISO 22000 norm

The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) developed a consistent norm in close collaboration with organisations and food experts that was derived from the HACCP concept: the ISO 22000 norm. The objectives of the ISO 22000 norm are “planning, designing, implementing, operating, maintaining and updating a management system for food safety to achieve the safety of your products that your customers deserve, on the condition of respective and correct usage”.
