ISO 22000:2018 has been published on 19 June 2018

The 2018 version of ISO 22000 was published on 19 June 2018. With this release, ISO 22000:2005 will be withdrawn. Companies certified to the ISO 22000:2005 standard have to transition their certificate to ISO 22000:2018, and there is a 3-year transition period until June 19 2021.
 

WHAT ARE THE MAJOR CHANGES?

The high-level structure: in order to make life easier for businesses using more than one management system standard, the new version of ISO 22000 will follow the same structure as all the other ISO management system standards, the High-Level Structure (HLS).
The risk approach: the standard now includes a different approach to understanding risk.
The PDCA cycle: the standard clarifies the Plan-Do-Check-Act cycle, by having two separate cycles in the standard working together: one covering the management system and the other, covering the principles of HACCP.
The operation process: a clear description is given of the differences between key terms such as: Critical Control Points (CCPs), Operational Prerequisite Programmes (OPRPs) and Prerequisite Programmes (PRPs).

ISO 45001 UPDATE: ISO 45001:2018 STANDARD PUBLISHED

On March 12, 2018, the final version of the new ISO 45001 standard was published by the International Standard Organization (ISO).
Over 7 600 people die each day from work-related accidents or diseases – that’s over 2.78 million every year*.
The burden of occupational injuries and diseases is significant, both for employers and the wider economy, resulting in losses from early retirements, staff absence and rising insurance premiums.
To combat the problem, ISO has developed a new standard, ISO 45001, Occupational health and safety management systems – Requirements, that will help organizations reduce this burden by providing a framework to improve employee safety, reduce workplace risks and create better, safer working conditions, all over the world.
ISO 45001:2018 replaces OHSAS 18001:2007 as the globally recognized occupational health and safety management system certification standard. While it is similar to OHSAS 18001, the new ISO 45001 standard adopts the Annex SL top-level framework of all new and revised ISO management system standards.

Transition from OHSAS 18001:2009 to ISO 45001:2018

ISO 45001 is anticipated to replace OHSAS 18001 over three years following its publication. It uses the management system standard structure guideline Annex SL to allow for simplified integration with other management system standards, such as ISO 9001 and ISO 14001.
How to make the transition?
Obtain a copy of ISO 45001:2018.
Identify the gaps in your existing OHSAS 18001 system which need to be addressed to meet any new requirements.
Develop an implementation plan.
Ensure that any new competence needs are met and create awareness for all parties that have an impact on the effectiveness of the OHSAS.
Update the existing OHSAS to meet the new requirements and provide verification of its effectiveness.
Where applicable, liaise with your certification body for migration arrangements.
