ISO 22000 Certification in Ireland covers all the processes in the food chain that contribute to food safety. This standard specifies the requirements for a comprehensive food safety management system and incorporates the elements of Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) and Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points (HACCP).
By harmonizing national standards into one simple and easy-to-understand set of requirements, ISO 22000:2018 creates a single food safety standard recognized worldwide. From agriculture to food services, processing, transportation and storage, and packaging to retail, all organizations in the food supply chain will be able to use this internationally recognized food safety standard.
How does ISO 22000 Certification in Ireland work?

ISO 22000:2018: WHAT IS NEW?
On June 19, 2018, ISO 22000:2018 was updated with significant changes. They include:
- Integrate ISO standards more easily: aligning with the Higher Level Structure (HLS) convention, a requirement for all new standards or amendments, will allow for more excellent compatibility between different ISO standards. Adding ISO 22000:2018 to an existing ISO-based management system is much more accessible.
- There has been a complete review of the requirements of the standard, developing additional clarity by redefining concepts such as PRP and oPRP to enable a more superficial understanding and implementation.
- Improved alignment with Codex HACCP: to ensure that implementation follows the Codex methodology, the requirements now closely follow the Codex steps, so the development of the HACCP is now embedded within the standard.
- Streamlined implementation: specific information identified in the standard enables you to produce documents that comply with ISO 22000:2018
- Clarification of PDCA: ISO 22000:2018 clarifies how to apply the PDCA (Plan-Do-Check-Act) cycle to ensure processes are adequately resourced and managed, and improvements are implemented. The revision adopts two interconnected PDCA cycles, the food safety management system and the product development/service delivery PDCA, based on Codex HACCP principles.
- A new way of thinking about risk: traditionally, the standard only examined the risk posed by the product to the final consumer by applying the Codex HACCP principles. Codex HACCP still applies in the new revision, but an organizational risk assessment will be added.
- Clause structure simplified: The update follows a step-by-step process and makes implementation more linear.
