Requirements of UNE 22000 standard:

The ISO 22000 standard does not set the same requirements for all companies, as the standards and procedures required for high-risk areas of one food industry may not be appropriate for others. For this reason, the standard is not limited to providing a compliance “check list ”, unlike other certification systems.

If a company wants to obtain a certificate according to ISO 22000 standard, it needs to monitor the laws of the local and export markets as well as the specifications and requirements of its customers. Therefore, the ISO 22000 standard requires specific adaptation to the needs of the industry of each type of food product.

Advantages of UNE 22000 standard:

  • More fluid communication through the supply chain.
  • Confidence in the consumer.
  • Increases competitiveness.
  • Greater transparency along the food chain.
  • Adheres to the principles of the HACCP code.
  • Optimizes resources both internally and throughout the food chain.
  • All control measures are subject to risk analysis.
