Food manufacturers – new tool to control hazards
Thousands of food manufacturers worldwide stand to benefit from a newly published document in the ISO 22000 series designed to prevent and control food safety hazards.
Prerequisite programmes on food safety – Part 1: Food manufacturing, ISO technical specification ISO/TS 22002-1:2009, sets out requirements for prerequisite programmes needed to realise safe products and provide food that is safe for human consumption. ISO/TS 22002-1:2009 is intended to be used in conjunction with, and to support, ISO 22000:2005, which gives requirements for a food safety management system.
