In this presentation, Jorge Bravo and Elisabeth Thaller will explain how to obtain the most benefit out of your food safety management system (FSMS) through effective auditing.
In 2018 two important standards for the food industry were revised: ISO 22000 and ISO 19011. The ISO 22000 standard establishes the requirements for an FSMS and follows the ISO/IEC Directives Annex SL High Level Structure.
Organizations certified to the previous version (and those that use the standard without opting for certification) are required update their FSMS.
ISO 19011:2018 provides guidelines for audits that are consistent, reliable, effective, and add value by obtaining useful information regarding the analysis of context, the use of risk-based thinking, commitment. and the approach to processes of the audited organization. To achieve a satisfactory result, the document emphasizes the competence of the auditors and the audit team.
Therefore, the new audit standard supports the evaluation and improvement of the performance of an FSMS ISO 22000: 2018 system (and of other SL based management systems).
The presentation will also mention the most important changes that led to the creation of these two new standards and how these documents complement each other today for the benefit of organizations, auditors. and other interested parties.
