We are presently conducting our Internal Audit and involved departments are Production, Warehouse, Maintenance, HR, QA, Purchasing & Marketing.  I am from Production Department and I have to audit HR Department applying the standards of ISO 22000 & ISO/TS 22002-1.  Can you help me what are the documents and records that i can check to audit HR and how to reference or relate it to these standards?  Is HR required to have its own procedure with regards to Competency, Awareness & Training as well as Health requirements and policy? 


Thank you very much and advance Merry Christmas!

Dear Lilia Maria,


For auditing HR department in compliance with ISO 22000 think of:

- organizational chart;

- job description;

- training and education;

- job evaluations;

- etc.

Kind Regards,

Madam A. D-tor

To add to Madam A.D-tor's post, the HR section of ISO 22000 should be considered:


6.2 Human resources
6.2.1 General
The food safety team and the other personnel carrying out activities having an impact on food safety shall be competent and shall have appropriate education, training, skills and experience.
Where the assistance of external experts is required for the development, implementation, operation or assessment of the food safety management system, records of agreement or contracts defining the responsibility and authority of external experts shall be available.
6.2.2 Competence, awareness and training
The organization shall
a) identify the necessary competencies for personnel whose activities have an impact on food safety,
b) provide training or take other action to ensure personnel have the necessary competencies,
c) ensure that personnel responsible for monitoring, corrections and corrective actions of the food safety management system are trained,
d) evaluate the implementation and the effectiveness of a), b) and c),
e) ensure that the personnel are aware of the relevance and importance of their individual activities in contributing to food safety,
f) ensure that the requirement for effective communication (see 5.6) is understood by all personnel whose activities have an impact on food safety, and
g) maintain appropriate records of training and actions described in b) and c).


Kind regards,
