Course Overview

ISO 22000:2018 was released in June 2018, and is an international standard. As it follows the same High Level Structure (HLS) structure as other widely applied ISO standards, such as ISO 9001 and ISO 14001, it will be easier to integrate with other management systems. 

If you are already applying ISO 22000:2005, you will recognize most of the requirements in ISO 22000:2018. However, there are quite a few changes from ISO 22000:2005 that you must prepare for in order to transition and comply with ISO 22000:2018.


Participants should have knowledge in ISO 22000:2005 FSMS standard.

The major areas of amendment between ISO 22000:2005 and ISO 22000:2018 are:

  • The high level structure
  • The risk approach
  • The Plan-Do-Check-Act cycle
  • The operation process

  • Other changes that are specific to ISO 22000 and food safety management
    • The PDCA cycle
    • The scope now specifically includes animal food
    • Some important changes in the definitions
    • Communicating the food safety policy
    • Food Safety Management System Objectives
    • Control of externally-provided processes, products or service
  • Delivery methods
