ISO 22002-4:2013

Ensuring the safety of packaging materials is crucial in the modern food sector. Food products and their packaging may come into direct contact, and any damage might seriously endanger customers' health. Food packaging producers are required to establish necessary programs (PRPs) as outlined in ISO 22002-4:2013, a technical specification from the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), to ensure safe food packaging. In order to help you prove your dedication to the highest standards of food safety, QC Certification, a top supplier of food safety certifications, provides an expedited route to ISO 22002-4:2013 certification.

What is ISO 22002-4:2013?

ISO 22002-4:2013 governs food safety management practices in food packaging manufacturing. It provides a framework for putting the PRP – the foundational program that lays the foundation for a strong food safety management system – into practice. The goal of these PRPs is to prevent contamination at every stage of food packaging manufacturing.

Key elements addressed by ISO 22002-4:2013 include:

  • Establishment: Minimizing the risks of pollution in facility design and maintenance.
  • Personnel Hygiene: Implement procedures for proper staff hygiene practices.
  • Sanitation and Pest Control: Implementing protocols for efficient cleaning and pest control systems.
  • Production Control: Regulating processes to guarantee the safety of food packaging components.
  • Control of Packaging Materials and Finished Products: Maintaining safety and quality standards at every stage of the production process.
By putting into practice these PRPs described in ISO 22002-4:2013, food packaging manufacturers can significantly improve their food safety measures.
