ISO -TS 22002-11: 2009 FOOD SAFETY PRECONDITIONS
ISO / TS 22002-1: 2009 specifies requirements for the establishment, implementation and maintenance of prerequisite programs (PRP) to help control food safety hazards.
ISO / TS 22002-1: 2009 can be applied to all organizations, regardless of size or complexity, involved in the production step of the food chain and who wish to implement PRP in a manner that meets the requirements specified in ISO 22000: 2005, Clause 7.
ISO / TS 22002-1: 2009 is not designed or used for other parts of the food supply chain.
The Food Sector entered the year 2010 with the technical standard 22002-1: 2009 prerequisite programs in Food Safety – Part 1: Food Producers. The ISO 22002-1: 2009 prerequisite programs standard was published on 14.12.2009 at the end of the year. Thus, the ISO 22000 family has also expanded.
On 23.02.2010, GFSI (The Global Food Safety Initiative) Global Food Safety Initiative, managed by the Consumer Products Forum, made a statement that it fully accepted the FSSC 22000 standard scheme. The approved standard is the combination of FSSC 22000, ISO 22000 and PAS 220. There is a note in the guidance document of GFSI that the ISO 22000-1 prerequisite programs standard can also be read in addition to the PAS 220 specifications. For now, the questions that the PAS 220 will be canceled after the ISO standard is published have been answered.
The nonprofit (FSSC) Food Safety Certification Association has the license and right to publish the FSSC 22000: 2010 standard. The scope of FSSC 22000 currently consists of processed animal and herbal products and food and its ingredients (additives, vitamins, etc.) products that can be stored for a long time in a normal environment.
In the next stage, it is expected to combine the audit requirements of GFSI with the integration of ISO 22000 and PAS 220 specifications. It works with FSSC accreditation bodies for the scope of ISO 17021 and ISO 22003. Until the current accreditation studies are completed, companies will continue to receive FSSC 22000 certificates that are not accredited.
Thus, the 6th Standard FSSC-22000 took its place in the GFSI’s list alongside BRC, Dutch HACCP, Global GAP, IFS and SQF 2000.
As a result, as we stated in our article published on Gelişim website in June 2009; While the determining factor in the system selection is in line with the demand of the customer, actually the only purpose is; To establish an effective food safety management system by complying with legal requirements. The contribution of this development to companies in the food chain and implementing the international ISO 22000 system will be great.
