Science-based standards

SSAFE actively collaborates with intergovernmental organizations to promote the global acceptance of internationally recognized food protection systems and science-based standards

ISO 22002-5 for Storage & Transport

Project Overview

Storage and transportation are integral elements in the food supply chain. Growers and food processors rely on proper storage and transportation practices to ensure that their products arrive safely at the final destination and in good condition. To help storage and transportation companies meet ISO 22000, SSAFE is working with ISO in the development of a set of requirements that specify establishing, implementing and maintaining prerequisite programmes (PRPs) specifically for transport and storage in the food chain to assist in controlling food safety hazards. It will be applicable to all organizations, regardless of size or complexity, which are involved in transport and storage activities across the food supply chain, that wish to implement PRPs in such a way as to address the requirements specified in ISO 22000. 

PROJECT OBJECTIVES

  • Provide food storage and transport companies with a tool to meet PRP requirements set out in ISO 22000
  • Help food storage and transport companies become better integrated into the food supply chain
  • Provide a route for storage and transport companies to become certified to a GFSI recognised scheme
  • Develop a technical specification through an open consensus-based process
