We have implemented ISO 22000:2018 but we have visited 2 certifying companies now but they are informing us they cannot certify us with the accredited version of the same until later on this year. They are giving us 2 options
1. Get the ISO 22000:2005 then upgrade during the surveillance audit.
2. Get the unaccredited version of 22000:2018 then have it accredited when they receive approvals.
1.Is there anyone facing the same issues-do we have companies that can certify us for the same but the accredited version?
2. Of the two options which one is viable considering the target timelines we had set for certification is due?
