    • To understand the context of the organization, the internal and external issues that are relevant to the food safety of the organization must be reviewed in detail.
  2. Leadership

    • Increased involvement in the food safety system from top level management by adding commitments that cannot be delegated to others in the organization.
  3. Planning

  4. Support

    • People are the most important resource in any organization. They need to have a high level of awareness regarding their authorities and responsibilities.
  1. Operation

    • There needs to be clarity in the traceability system requirements. The system should be able to identify material from suppliers to the distribution route of the end product.
  2. Performance evaluation

ISO 22000:2018 advocates using a process approach to developing and implementing a Food Safety Management System and that management of the processes and the system as a whole can be achieved using a Plan-Do-Check-Act (PDCA) cycle, with an overall focus on risk-based thinking.

The standard prescribes two Plan-Do-Check-Act Cycles.

The first at Organizational Risk Management level covering the framework of all clauses:

The second at Operational level covering Clause 8 Operation based on HACCP Principles but also including ISO 22000’s unique requirement for Operational Prerequisite Programmes:

Prerequisite Programmes on Food Safety Compliance

For each food sector category, there are specific requirements to establish, implement and maintain prerequisite programmes (PRPs) to assist in controlling food safety hazards.

These are normally prescribed in ISO Technical Specifications, for example, food manufacturers need to comply with ISO/TS 22002-1:2009 Prerequisite programmes on food safety -Part 1: Food manufacturing.
