ISO 22000 PRP (Prerequisite Programs)

Documenting processes provides control and consistency of how processes are performed.

Food Safety Management System Documentation

Your system will need to be documented in the form of policies, objectives, procedures and records. The typical documented management system is made up of four levels of documentation:

Food Safety Management System Manual (with policies), Procedures, Work Instructions, and Forms and Records.

Documenting your processes

You will need to document procedures called out by the standard as well as those required to ensure control of other processes in your FSMS.

This means that your FSMS will have more documented procedures than just those specifically named in the standard but these procedures will be useful documents. They will ensure that processes are being done as management planned and approved. Conversely, they will ensure that management knows how processes are being performed.

Specific procedures required by the standard are:

Control of Documents, Control of Records, Control of unsafe product, Corrections, Corrective Actions, Withdrawals and Internal Audits.

Documented procedures will also make sure that different people perform the process the same way. You will not be writing the procedure and putting it in a book on the shelf to collect dust, you will be building a system where documented procedures and work instructions will become an important and integral part of your system.
