Good day to all. There are exactly 260 companies globally that have reached ISO 22000 certification. This is as of Feb. 15, 07. I work for a very recognized registrar that has several accreditations for this standard. We are placed 3rd in Food Safety certifications. Lastly 52 countries have at least one ISO 22000 company now operating within them. Check attachment for breakdown by country.

Dear mkratz23,

A fascinating, elegant and informative compilation. No doubt the professional users will have some informed comments however as a non-user of ISO22k, could I ask 2 questions with probably obvious answers?
(a) It's not important but I didn't quite get the use of the term Europe (CEMEA) - I believe (google) the bracket is Central Europe, Middle East and Africa (?) so why refer it as Europe (tab6) and (b) is it really possible to get ISO22k for "power transmission"? (No.104, tab1)

A fantastic and interesting piece of research Michael, it must have taken quite some time and effort compiling the data. Thank you very much for sharing it. :clap:

I expect 260 Certifications Worldwide in more than 12 months is a very disappointing number. Looking forward what is the forecast for the next 12 months, in which regions and industry sectors can we expect ISO 22000 to flourish? And conversely where will it fall flat?

Regards,
Simon

I think any such research is bound to have some gaps Selmin. So what is your company name so that it can be added to the information? :thumbup:

A good piece of work but sadly as I agree with Simon if this is the true global figure since official release then I believe ISO 22000 is a failure.

I also concur that figures may change during compilation but I have to response in disagreement with your numbers. The Registrar I know have a total number 20 organizations ISO 22K certified in Malaysia alone as at 31st January 2007 while your figure show only 3. Therefore your figures appear to be some what way off the mark.

I wonder if your figures are official complation numbers from IAF or ISO or just your organization because it certainly sends the wrong message across as this is an international forum. Care in providing statistics or advice is necessary.

Regards
Charles Chew

Friends,

I'm afraid this seems to be rather lacking as there are at least 7 CBs missing who are UKAS accredited (AJA, AJA Europe, WCS, QA International, Global, Certification International & Perry Johnsons).

I know from personal experience that at least 3 companies have the registration in Turkey (having audited them) but this shows only 1.

Don't lose faith in ISO22000 just yet, we have many companies applying now for ISO22000 and this number should increase rapidly as the market becomes more aware.

Any CB's who I have missed it's not intentional so please feel free to add names.

James

Friends,
I was shocked to see that there are tobacco companies in the list of ISO22k certified organizations.
Still unable to understand that how the companies manage the lethality at its end use. As a food safety guy it is big ? for me. Can any one share his expert opinion on this.
Regards.

Good point, it is kind of strange when you think about it.

We know they kill, but we don't want to harm you. :rolleyes:

Dear Simon,

No doubt it is is spelled out within this forum somewhere already but I suppose these results derive from the scope of the possibilities of certification.

This is not exclusively ISO22k but can see -

http://www.hk.sgs.co...o_22000_qu1.pdf

tobacco - pg5

Some of the items on Pg8 are quite interesting also, I guess this explains the "power transmission systems" comment I posted earlier.

I know nothing about tobacco processing, except that which I used to do with my lungs. :thumbdown: I find it hard to understand how tobacco can be mentioned in the same breath as food. That said I know from my dealing with a foil manufacturer that Phillip Morris are absolute sticklers for hygiene and product safety; they were the toughest customer and far more so than their food contact foil customers. :dunno:

I think we've meandered again. :rolleyes:

Regards,
Simon

Dear Simon,

Of course, some people do chew tobacco though it would not seem to be a particularly safe food product.
( http://en.wikipedia....Chewing_tobacco ).

Is chewing gum classified as a food ? I guess so.

End of OT :smile:

Yes I think so and what about toothpaste? :unsure:

OK. Any other thoughts on the research posted at the start of the thread, for starters how far do we think it's out???

What about those lard/fat laden and cholestrol infused food. I am sure they killed faster than tobacco. And no, I am non smoker and having visited the plant (fully automated) of an international tobacco company, I agreed with the other member the its quality control in way above other food processing plants.

Hi all,
I was away from the forum so couldn't respond timely. My concern still stands. It should not be confused with the scope of certification for ISO 9001. Also HACCP is a risk management approach which is widely used to manage hazards in nonfood sectors too. I also used to audit an organization which manufacture sanitary napkins and use HACCP as a tool to proactively manage product safety.
But in case of ISO22k situation is different as its scope clearly states that "This international standard specifies the requirements for a FSMS where an organization in the food chain needs to demonstrate its ability to control food safety hazards in order to ensure that food is SAFE AT THE TIME OF HUMAN CONSUMPTION!!!"
Also its a clear known fact that more than 24 highly poisonous compounds are produced by burning a cigarette and all these compounds not only adversly affect the smoker but also to the people who are near him/her. And passive smoking is more dangerous to health.
Can anyone share his/her auditing/consultancy/implementation experience that how this sort of issues were handled during the assessment audits for ISO22k.
Regards.
Jahanzeb
