Introduction to ISO/TS 22002
ISO 22000 sets out specific food safety requirements for organizations in the food chain. One such requirement is that organizations establish, implement and maintain prerequisite programmes (PRP) to assist in controlling food safety hazards (ISO 22000:2005, 7.2). In addition to addressing the requirements of ISO 22000:2005, 7.2, this Technical Specification includes communication requirements from ISO 22000:2005, 5.6.
This part of ISO/TS 22002 is intended to be used to support management systems designed to meet the requirements specified in ISO 22000, and sets out the detailed requirements for those programmes.
The ISO/TS 22002 does not duplicate requirements given in ISO 22000 and is intended to be used in conjunction with ISO 22000, e.g. the effectiveness of measures taken according to this Technical Specification to protect against contamination of the food packaging are intended to be reviewed.
ISO/TS 22002 consists of the following parts, under the general title Prerequisite programmes on food safety:
- Part 1: Food manufacturing
- Part 2: Catering
- Part 3: Farming
- Part 4: Food packaging manufacturing
- Part 5: Transport and storage
- Part 6: Feed and animal food production
This Technical Specification is based on
- BS PAS 223:2011,and
- EN 15593:2008
