The Food Safety Manual establishes and states the policies governing the Company’s Food Safety Management System (FSMS). These policies define management’s arrangements for managing operations and activities in accordance with ISO 22000:2005. These top-level policies represent the plans or protocols for achieving food safety, quality assurance and customer satisfaction.
This Food Safety Manual covers the requirements of ISO 22000:2005. This sample is intended only to provide an example of wording that might be used in a food safety manual. This sample wording can be helpful in generating ideas for developing a manual for your own company. However, food safety policies should be drafted as appropriate and as necessary to accurately reflect your company’s food safety management system. While this manual generally follows the section numbering used in the ISO standard for clarity, it is not necessary for your food safety manual to do the same. The numbering scheme that is most useful and meaningful to you should be selected.
