 The ISO 45001:2018 standard updates the international standard OHSAS 18001:2008 concerning Health and Safety at work. The objective of the standard is to provide corporate organizations with the central and necessary elements of an effective management system, helping to achieve corporate Health and Safety objectives through the formation of a strong positive safety culture.

ΙI. ISO 9001:2015 

ISO 9001:2005 is an internationally recognized business model and is a standard for the Quality Assurance of a company’s services. 

More specifically, ISO 9001:2015 certification

Among others, the advantages for the company are:

IV. ISO 22000:2018

 The ISO 22000:2018 standard “Food Safety Management Systems – Requirements for Food Chain Organizations” has international validity and applies to companies that manage food for production and/or marketing or produce products that come into contact with food.
ISO 22000 is the comprehensive answer to issues related to Food Safety. It is a system that includes HACCP requirements and specifications, alignment with the Codex Alimentarius, part of the requirements of ISO 9001, traceability and the application of the relevant legislation for each type of food, etc.
The standard does not address quality attributes, but focuses on Food Safety. In particular, it examines the risk factors for public health, such as microbes, chemicals, foreign substances, at all stages of food preparation and proposes the appropriate preventive measures to deal with them. ISO 22000 acts proactively by protecting the business from damage and suggests a crisis response plan. 

 

V. ISO 17025:2005

The ISO 17025:2005 standard is about “Management Systems for Testing and Calibration Laboratories”. The accreditation of a laboratory is the official recognition by a competent recognized body that has the ability to carry out specific analyses, tests and calibrations and is proof of the reliability of its results.
The standard requires laboratories to implement a quality system that satisfies a number of management requirements, which cover key principles of ISO 9001.
