]ISO 22000, the International Standard on food safety management systems was published in 2005. Since then, the markets' needs have evolved and in September this year there are plans to revise the standard.

As part of the revision process ISO are seeking the input of stakeholders involved in the food chain that use, implement, or make reference to ISO 22000.

In order to remain as relevant as possible, ISO standards are reviewed every 5 years to assess the need for a revision. The committee behind ISO 22000, ISO/TC 34/SC 17, is currently running a review until mid-June to collect as many comments as possible on the standard before the revision process is set to start in September.

If you represent industry, consumers, governments, regulators, laboratories, or any other organization active in the food industry, what do you like about the standard, what do you think needs to be changed and did you have any problems implementing it?

If you wish to suggest improvements for the next version of ISO 22000 visit the ISO website to find out how you can submit your comments: http://www.iso.org/i...m?refid=Ref1842

About ISO 22000 – Food safety management systems

ISO 22000 was designed to be used by any organization across the food chain, including both large and small businesses. The standard creates a framework for establishing principles, procedures and guidelines to manage food safety while helping to develop cost-effective management in the industry.

Furthermore, it provides practical tools needed for managing food safety as a single coherent system. The ISO survey on certification reveals that the number of certificates for ISO 22000 has increased by 20% between 2011 and 2012 and the standard is now certified to in 142 countries.

Does anybody know where I can obtain a draft copy.

There is no draft - there is a request for comments only which will be used for the 5 year review. The current standard is available at the ISO store
