Procedure for the ISO 22000 Certification

Pre-audit (optional)

Pre-audits provide optimal preparation for the subsequent certification audit according to ISO 22000. Customers identify their strengths and weaknesses early on and can prepare themselves specifically for the ISO 22000 certification. The auditors perform a preliminary assessment. They determine if and which requirements of the standard have already been implemented in your company.

Certification audit

The audit team reviews the extent to which the documentation of your compliance management system already corresponds to the standard. You demonstrate the practical application of your management system. Our auditors examine the effectiveness.

Issuing the certificate

Once all criteria have been fulfilled, your company receives the ISO 22000 certificate which certifies the integrity and compliance of your management system.

Control audits

Our annual control audits help you to continuously optimize your processes.

Certification renewal

With a renewal of the certification before the expiration of three years, you permanently extend your continuous improvement process. For your partners and customers, you permanently document the successful deployment of your management system according to ISO 22000.

Which Companies are Suitable for an ISO 22000 Certification?
