The ISO 22000 standard as it is today, combines very well an ISO 9000 type approach to a management system with HACCP.
However, if the ISO 22000 standard would be benchmarked against the GFSI Guidance Document, it wouldn’t pass the preliminary screening, for missing one of the three ‘key elements’ Good Manufacturing (or Agricultural) Standards.
7.2.3 When selecting and establishing PRP(s), the organization shall consider and utilize appropriate information (e.g. regulations, customer requirements, recognized guidelines, Codex Alimentarius Commission (Codex) principles and codes of practices, national, international or sector standards).
NOTE Annex C gives a list of relevant Codex publications.
The organization shall consider the following when establishing these programmes:
a) construction and lay-out of buildings and associated utilities;
b) lay-out of premises, including workspace and employee facilities;
c) supplies of air, water, energy and other utilities;
d) supporting services including waste and sewage disposal;
e) suitability of equipment and its accessibility for cleaning, maintenance and preventative maintenance;
f) management of purchased materials (e.g. raw materials, ingredients, chemicals, packaging), supplies (water, air, steam, ice, etc.), disposals (e.g. waste and sewage), and handling of products (e.g. storage and transportation);
g) measures for the prevention of cross contamination;
h) cleaning and sanitizing;
i) pest control;
j) personnel hygiene;
k) other aspects as appropriate.
Verification of PRP(s) shall be planned (see 7.8) and PRP(s) shall be modified as necessary (see 7.7). Records of verifications and modifications shall be maintained.
Documents should specify how to manage PRP(s).

ISO 22000 refers to ‘customer requirements’, which in the case of private label manufacturers effectively refers to the GFSI Benchmarked Standards, so why use ISO 22000 in the first place?
ISO 22000 comes without a protocol and retailers cannot have control over it. Retailers need a protocol to answer liability issues.
Potential of ISO 22000

CIEScomments on DIS - ISO 22000 January 2005 (3)
On a more general note, ISO 22000 is rather extensive and it remains to be seen whether smaller manufacturers and farmers could adopt it.
CIES have stated publicaly:
”Draft of ISO 22000 does not meet retailers’ requirements”.
This statement has been a great cause of concern to the International Standards Organisation as they mandated the developemnet of this standard and invited CIES to participate.
