The new ISO 22000:2018 has been published

The increased requirements of ISO 22000 had made a revision necessary. ISO 22000:2018 was published on 19 June 2018. As with other ISO revisions, the revised standard ISO 22000 will follow the High-Level Structure (HLS) and thereby facilitate combination with other management systems.

The following goals were achieved with the revision:

  • Clarify key concepts (e.g. critical inspection points, operating programs, risk handling, product returns and recalls, external control measures)
  • Update terms and definitions
  • Simplify and structure the standard
  • Improve applicability for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs)
  • Reduce regulating content
  • Improved compatibility with other management systems
  • Cooperation of two separate cycles in the PDCA cycle: Organizational planning and control of the management system and operational planning and control of food safety
  • Control of externally provided processes, products and services

ISO 22000 revision schedule

Companies already certified according to ISO 22000:2005 must convert to the new ISO 22000:2018 until 18 June 2021.
