Learning outcomes

Courses consist of the following:

  • Content relating to the adoption of Annex SL
  • Content relating to the specific requirements of ISO 22000:2018.

Courses are available in two formats:

ISO 22000:2018 (Combined) Transition

This course includes both the Annex SL content and the content specific to ISO 22000 as a combined programme over two days.

ISO 22000:2018 (Modular) Transition

This course has two separate modules: one for the Annex SL content and one for the ISO 22000-specific content. Auditors must attend both modules. However, if you are certificated to either ISO 45001, ISO 14001 or ISO 9001, you do not need to attend the Annex SL module twice.

Some approved training providers offer the two modules as separate courses, for the benefit of auditors certificated to more than one scheme who do not want to repeat the Annex SL content (if you prefer, you can still choose to attend the Annex SL content twice in order to better understand its relevance to both ISO 9001 and ISO 14001).
