ISO 22000 Strategic Approach to Risk-Based Thinking

ISO 22000, food safety management, is one of the most widely adopted standards in the world. It forms the foundation for a system of processes required to provide safe foods and relevant products or services that meet customer applicable statutory and regulatory requirements.

ISO 22000:2018 introduces the new concept of context of the organization. This requires your organization to determine the issues and requirements that can impact on the planning of your FSMS.  The implementation of your FSMS should be a strategic decision influenced by the context of your organization.

The standard also requires your organization to consider:

  • Alignment of the FSMS with the strategic direction of your organization
  • Determining the processes needed to achieve your intended results
  • Addressing risks and opportunities arising from the context of your organization

The determination of risks and opportunities should be carried out at both organizational and operational levels. This training shall focus on determination of risks and opportunities at organizational level.
