ISO/TS 22002-1 specification has replaced the originally issued PAS 220 specifies requirements for establishing, implementing and maintaining prerequisite programmes (PRP) to assist in controlling food safety hazards and addresses the requirements specified in ISO 22000:2005, Clause 7.
ISO/TS 22002-1:2009 is neither designed nor intended for use in other parts of the food supply chain and it is intended to be used in conjunction with ISO 22000, and therefore all organisations seeking certification to FSSC 22000, will have their FSSC 22000 assessments conducted against ISO/TS 22002-1 in addition to ISO 22000. Leading up to this certification, however LRQA is able to provide a gap analysis assessment against the requirements of ISO/TS 22002-1.
ISO/TS 22002-1:2009 is applicable to all organisations, regardless of size or complexity, which are involved in the manufacturing step of the food chain and wish to implement PRP.
The development was sponsored by the Confederation of the Food and Drink Industries of the European Union (CIAA), now known as FoodDrinkEurope, the largest trade body representing the interests of the food and drink industry.
LRQA technical specialists were members of the development steering group which also included major food manufacturers, Danone, Kraft, Nestle and Unilever and representatives from the Food and Drink Federation (FDF), McDonald’s, General Mills Europe (representing the FDF Food Hygiene Committee), and French National Association of Food Industries (representing CIAA).
