Anyone know if ISO 22002-1 require meet with WHO drinking water specs ? 


I ask that because PAS 220 require it but I don't find anything in ISO 22002-1.

Dear Marcos,


Not myself a user of FSSC22000 but I noticed that PAS220 (2008) contains this introductory  chunk of text (the underlines are mine) –

The provisions of this PAS are presented in roman (i.e. upright) type. Its requirements are expressed in sentences in which the principal auxiliary verb is “shall”. Its recommendations are expressed in sentences in which the principal auxiliary verb is “should”.

Commentary, recommendations, explanation and general informative material is presented in smaller italic type, using the heading NOTE, and does not constitute a normative element.


So, since the specific authority you mentioned is omitted in the (later) ISO version,  presumably not required (and actually not mandated in PAS220 either).


For some product types /  locations / export destinations, specific  legislatory requirements may well exist which would presumably take precedence. Even then, IMEX it is unusual that analytical data  matching the full specification is necessary or expected. For example some typical parameters are not directly safety related.
