I always wondered that myself. My guess is ISO intends to be as generic as possible in order to be applicable to all plants regardless of its capacity. In that sense more requirements will make it more specific so less companies will join the ISO program (meaning less income).
Yes, and expanding slightly -
But ISO 22000 alone doesn’t meet the GFSI benchmarking requirements, for 2 major reasons:
- The choice of the applicable PRPs is open for the certified company,
- There is no scheme owner behind ISO 22000 certification, to control that certification bodies operate according to GFSI compliant procedure.
