Food Safety Management Systems

Our ISO 22000 Lead Auditor Course is delivered across 5 days and provides an overview of ISO 22000:2018, before delving into the practical auditing skills required to perform audits against food safety management systems as either part of a team or as an audit team leader. It also provides a comprehensive understanding of ISO 19011, ‘Guidelines for auditing management systems’.

The 2018 version of ISO 22000 for food safety management systems adopts the High-Level Structure allowing organisations to easily integrate their food safety management system with other management systems like Quality (ISO 9001), Safety (ISO 45001) and Environmental (ISO 14001). JLB also runs an FSSC 22000 and other PRPs courses, more information can be found here.

This course includes modules AU, FS & TL (Exemplar Global TPECS). Recognition of prior learning will be awarded for Modules AU & TL if they have been completed within the previous three years.
