Standard ISO 22001 specifies requirements regarding food safety management systems in all food chain, from producers of feed, basic industry producers to food producers, carriers, retailers and catering establishment.

The standard includes also terms regarding programme of necessary prerequisites and operating programmes of necessary prerequisites.

The standard integrates the Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) system and application steps developed by Codex Alimentarius Commission and closely refers to ČSN EN ISO 9001. It serves for registration or certification of food safety management systems by external organization, for organization self-assessment, or more precisely for issue of own declaration of conformity with this international standard.

This provides maximum benefit for the organization and interested parties. ISO 22000 has been aligned with ISO 9001 in order to enhance the compatibility of the two standards.
