Since its launch in 2005, ISO 22000 has been adopted as the food safety management system of choice for more than 32,000 organisations worldwide (based on data from the annual ISO survey, 2016). The first major revision to this standard is expected to be published in 2018. In line with agreed policy for management system standards, ISO 22000:2018 will adopt the 10-section, high-level structure created by ISO, based on identical core text, and common terms and definitions. It will in essence become a business management system and will have implications for the future training of auditors.
