ISO stands for The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) that creates many different types of standards. ISO is the world’s largest developer and publisher of International Standards.It is a network of the national standards institutes of 159 countries, one member per country with a Central Secretariat in Geneva, Switzerland that coordinates the system.

 

ISO is a non-governmental organization that forms a bridge between the public and private sectors. Many of its member institutes are part of the governmental structure of their countries, or are mandated by their government. Other members have their roots uniquely in the private sector,having been set up by national partnerships of industry associations.Therefore, ISO enables a consensus to be reached on solutions that meet both the requirement of business and the broader needs of society.

 

Because “International Organization for Standardization” would have different acronyms in different languages(“IOS” in English, “OIN” in French for Organisation internationale de normalization), its founders decided to give it also a short, all purpose name. They choose “ISO” ,derived from the Greek isos meaning “ equal”. Whatever the country, whatever the language, the short form of the organization’s name is always ISO.

 

ISO  has published more than 16500 International Standards, ranging from standards for activities such as agriculture and construction, through mechanical engineering ,to medical devices, to the newest information technology departments. Some of the standards such as ISO 9001 (Quality Management System), ISO 14001 (Environmental Management System), ISO/IEC 27000 (Information Security Management Systems) and ISO 22000 (Feed Safety Management System) .ISO standards will



i.
Ensure desirable characteristic of products and services such as quality, environmental friendliness, safety, reliability, efficiency and interchangeability at an economical cost.
ii.
Make the development, manufacturing and supply of products and services more efficient ,safer and cleaner.
iii.
Facilitate trade between countries and make it fairer.
iv.
Provide governments with a technical base for health, safety and environmental legislation and conformity assessment.
v.
Share technological and good management practice.
vi.
Disseminate innovation.
vii.
Safeguard consumers and users in general of products and services.
viii.
Make life simpler by providing solutions to common problems.

 

ISO 22000:2005 is an International Standard for Feed Safety Management System integrates the principles of the Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) system and application steps developed by the Codex Alimentarius Commission. By means of auditable requirements, it combines the HACCP plan with prerequisite programmes (PRPs). Hazard analysis is the key to an effective food safety management system, since conducting a hazard analysis assists in organizing the knowledge required to establish an effective combination of control measures. This International Standard requires that all hazards that may be reasonably expected to occur in the food chain, including hazards that may be associated with the type of process and facilities used, are identified and assessed. Thus it provides the means to determine and document why certain identified hazards need to be controlled.

 

Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) is a modern food protection concept that has come of age. HACCP is divided into Hazard Analysis (HA) and Critical Control Points (CCP). HA is the rational and scientific estimation of hazards associated with foods, ingredients, and processes. CCP is defined as a step or location during the food manufacturing process where failure to control that step or location may result in unacceptable risk. HACCP anticipates and prevents problems before they happen. It is a real-time control measure applied during growing, harvesting, processing, manufacturing, distributing, marketing, and preparing foods.

 

Star Feedmills (M) Sdn.Bhd. produces the shrimp feed and fish feed. In order to ensure the feed is safe prior to use, thus the International Standards for feed safety is use to ensured that the feed safety hazards can be control. The International Standards for Feed Safety Management System is ISO 22000: 2005 that uses a management system approach and HACCP requirements.

 

This International Standards specifies the requirements for a feed safety management system that combines the following generally recognized key elements to ensure feed safety along the feed chain ,up to the point of final consumption;

 
— interactive communication;
— system management;
— prerequisite programmes; (PRP)
— HACCP principles.

 

This International Standard allows an organization (such as a small and/or less developed organization) to implement an externally developed combination of control measures. The aim of this International Standard is to harmonize on a global level the requirements for food safety management for businesses within the food chain. It is particularly intended for application by organizations that seek a more focused, coherent and integrated food safety management system than is normally required by law. It requires an Organization to meet any applicable food safety related statutory and regulatory requirements through its food safety management system.
