The ISO 22000 International Standard on food safety wants input from stakeholders as the committee begins its revision process
Geneva, Switzerland – ISO 22000, the International Standard on food safety management systems, wants to hear from you.
ISO is asking all stakeholders in the food chain and anyone who uses, implements or makes reference to ISO 22000 for feedback and comments on the standard.
The standard was published in 2005. To remain relevant, the standard is reviewed every five years to assess the need for a revision.
The committee behind ISO 22000, ISO/TC 34/SC 17, is currently running a review until mid-June to collect as many comments as possible on the standard before the revision process is set to start in September.
The committee is asking those who represent the food and beverage industry, and consumers, governments, regulators, laboratories, or any other organization active in the food industry, what they like about the standard, what they think needs to be changed and did they have any problems implementing it.
