ISO 22000:2018 - Food safety management systems - Requirements for any organization in the food chain

The adoption of a food safety management system (FSMS) is a strategic decision for an organization that can help to improve its overall performance in food safety. The potential benefits to an organization of implementing a FSMS based on this document are:

  • the ability to consistently provide safe foods and products and services that meet customer
  • addressing risks associated with its objectives;
  • the ability to demonstrate conformity to specified FSMS requirements.

In 2019, the SABS has adopted ISO 22000:2018 as an identical South African National Standard (SANS 22000).
