HACCP in combination with the ISO 22000 standard can verify the correctness of the production and distribution of food for your current and new customers. HACCP and ISO 22000 contain all the essential elements that you as a company in the process of production and distribution of food must follow. Our certification company during an audit checks all the main elements of both standards to assess compliance with these two systems. ISO 22000 contains some additional requirements of ISO 9001 standard which HACCP does not contain.
Our services of certification of your quality assurance system according to HACCP or ISO 22000:2005 include:
1. Preparation for certification audit – preaudit
As an option, if you want, we can complete the pre-audit. Pre-audit has to prepare for the audit, checking documents and conducting audits including issuing reports about the flaws. The goal of the pre-audit is to note all possible weaknesses of HACCP base (documentation) and implementation of quality systems.
2. Assessment of the HACCP/ISO 22000 documentation
This activity includes the review and assessment of applicable HACCP basis (HACCP manual, procedures, work instructions, etc.).
3. Certification audit

The certification audit includes planning and conducting audits, an official report and certification, registration of the ESQ CERT (license) and application of ESQ CERT signs for advertising purposes.
4. Surveillance audits
Throughout the validity of the certificates to optimize your HACCP system we conduct annual surveillance audits. Surveillance audit includes evaluating the revised HACCP basis, planning and implementation of audits and the issuance of the report, including the registration of the ESQ CERT.
The certificate which you will get after successfully completing an audit is issued by ESQ CERT and is completely the same as certificate which you can get in any other country inside the European Union.
