Certified Course for Auditors transiting to the new ISO 22000:2018


The purpose of this training course is to provide additional knowledge, skills and formal qualification for ISO 22000:2005 auditing professionals a comprehensive and certified training course to transit to the ISO 22000:2018 standard.

This training course is structured on a modular basis:

Module 1 – covering changes arising as a result of the adoption of Annex SL (one day)
Module 2 – covering changes arising as a result of amendments to the standard-specific content of ISO 22000:2018 (one day)

The advantage of this modular approach is that students will not be required to re-sit Module 1 (the Annex SL content) once this has been successfully completed. Instead, they need only complete the relevant standard-specific module (Module 2 of that particular Transition Course).
