ISO 22000 Lead Auditor

As a professional in the food supply chain, you can learn to use effective food safety management system auditing skills to improve your organization. Use your understanding as an auditee and as an auditor to strengthen your system and its processes to assure food safety.
ISO 22000 provides a common set of requirements for your food safety management system. Use it to reduce the risks to health resulting from processes throughout the food chain from “farm to fork”.

Unlike other food safety standards which tend to be prescriptive, ISO 22000 provides a practical and versatile approach for improving the system that runs the organization.

Unsafe food comes from weak systems. Weak systems fail to ensure processes are under control. Weak systems fail to continually improve. Learn to be effective in your auditing of food safety management systems for robust systems.

This course focuses on management systems, ISO 22000 food safety management systems and auditing.

Gain the tools necessary to conduct and lead process and system audits to determine conformity to ISO 22000.
