Hi all


Am new here & to ISO 22000 so I appreciate all the assistance I can get. 


My client is a manufacturer of secondary packaging (no direct food contact) & has implemented ISO 9001. They are now wanting to implement ISO 22000. With the the research that I have done, I feel that it's not necessary to implement ISO 22000 and that they should rather add the risks (e.g. rodents, hygiene) to the ISO 9001 risk register.


Please can I get some guidance on whether my thought process is correct?


Many thanks

Depends what you mean by 'no direct food contact'. This is a discussion we have with our customers (food producers) all the time. There may not be physical contact between the packaging and the food but it may share the same air space and so contamination could still occur.

We manufacture solid board printed cartons for food use and I think the term 'direct food contact' is becoming redundant.

If food is involved then certain standards should be applied. I am not familiar with ISO 22000 as we have BRC but could your client replace 9001 with 22000?
