ISO 22000 2018 Food Safety Audit Process

ISO 22000 2018 is an international food safety management standard.

This page will introduce and describe our new ISO 22000 2018 Internal Audit Tool.
However, it will not present the entire product. Instead, it will explain our approach
and it will show you a detailed sample of our work (see PDF). Once you've studied
our audit approach, we hope you'll purchase our complete internal audit process.

ISO 22000 2018 section 9.2.1 expects your organization to "conduct internal audits
at planned intervals to provide information on whether the
FSMS conforms to the requirements of this document" (i.e., the ISO 22000 standard). Our audit tool will
help you meet this requirement. It will show you how to determine whether or not
your food safety management system (FSMS) conforms to the requirements of
the ISO 22000 2018 standard. 

Our audit tool will pinpoint the gaps that exist between ISO's food safety
management standard and your organization's food safety practices and processes.
Once you've filled all the gaps, you can be sure that you conform to (or comply with)
ISO 22000 2018 and that you've done everything you possibly can to enhance the
effectiveness of your organization's food safety practices and processes.

Since ISO 22000 has seven main sections, our audit tool uses
seven questionnaires. These questionnaires will allow you to:

  1. Assess how well you conform to ISO's context requirements.
  2. Assess how well you conform to ISO's leadership requirements.
  3. Assess how well you conform to ISO's planning requirements.
  4. Assess how well you conform to ISO's support requirements.
  5. Assess how well you conform to ISO's operational requirements.
  6. Assess how well you conform to ISO's evaluation requirements.
  7. Assess how well you conform to ISO's improvement requirements.

For each audit question, three answers are possible: YES, NO, or N/A
(to save space we use Y, N, X). A YES answer means you’re in compliance with
the standard, a NO answer means you’re not in compliance, while an N/A answer
means that a question is not applicable in your case. NO answers identify gaps
that exist between the standard and your food safety practices and processes
while N/A answers point to items that may be ignored or excluded.

All gaps must be filled and all N/A answers must be justified and explained
before you can officially say that your food safety management system (FSMS)
complies with (or conforms to) the new ISO 22000 2018 standard.

Once you’ve completed all seven audit questionnaires, study your NO answers,
your own comments, and our questions and then use this information to formulate
actions or steps that need to be taken to bring your organization's food safety practices and processes into compliance with the ISO 22000 standard. Use this information to develop your own unique ISO 22000 Food Safety Compliance Plan.

Before you start your audit, please fill out the form entitled Profile of your food
safety audit project
(section 2, see above). First record the name of the organization
being audited, its address, and a brief description of the scope or focus of the audit.
Also record the names of audit team members and your start date. Once you have
completed the audit, use the same form to record when the audit was finished,
who reviewed the audit and when, and any review comments (if any).

You can also summarize your audit results quantitatively if you wish (section 11).
The idea here is to measure how compliant your organization's food safety practices
and processes actually are. And if you carry out regular audits, you can also use our
approach to measure whether or not your food safety practices and processes are
improving over time.

We’ve also provided a mini audit questionnaire (section 3, above) that you can
use to carry out a quick food safety audit or to decide what general areas need
more detailed attention. If you’re not clear about what one of these questions is
talking about, go to our more detailed audit tool and study the relevant section
.
