ISO Certification for Lubricants | NSF International
Step 2 requires a review by the assessing body e. See all related news. Like many voluntary standards, it has taken a while for mainstream 2146. Developments in the field have now led to a more thorough process to ensure safety in the high risk sector of food and drink manufacturing.
What You Need to Know About ISO 21469 and Food Safety
Get audit and test results online. Manufacturing site audits are carried out allowing the NSF to confirm that all the criteria for accreditation are met. Yes, I 214699 like to receive email from NSF. A lubricant with NSF H1 accreditation is acceptable for incidental food contact and can be used in and around food processing areas.
ISO does not apply to lubricant additives HX-1 or to direct food contact lubricants. Certification will not be given until all criteria for each phase has been met. This ensures that only safe levels of any ingredient are contained within an NSF accredited lubricant.
In the United States, lubricants intended for use in food production are registered with the National Sanitation Foundation NSF as either H1, H2 or H3, depending on the intended application and formulation. We expect this to have a positive impact by reducing costs and timelines associated with the prior authorization process.
Risk Assessment Risk assessments must be carried out to ensure that all potential hazards within the manufacturing process are identified. For example, by analyzing hygiene issues that arise from handling the product, manufacturers who follow NSF ISO are in a position to provide better guidance to customers on best practice recommendations within their own facilities.
Products are classified based on related product families e. For more information, please visit www. Through recent discussions with key personnel in the lubricants industry and in evaluating the benefit of applying this authorization practice for single ingredient white mineral oils, NSF has decided to streamline its review practice and will now evaluate white mineral oil CAS as a single ingredient, not a formulation subject to the authorization process.
Consumers are protected against the possibility of eating a product which is tainted with hazardous material. The NSF ISO certification assessment bridges the gap between traditional management systems registrations and H1 registration, and provides an excellent means of achieving continuous improvement objectives in your facility.
For many years, NSF H1 accreditation was accepted as the standard indication of food safe lubricants, this is an honour system and is unaudited. It also provides an internationally recognized benchmark for companies to measure their product quality. With NSF ISOa risk analysis on cleaning procedures is performed to ensure the separation from alternative industrial lubricants. It is an independent, non-profit making organisation providing product certification.
The NSF H1 registration program is a continuation of the former USDA authorization program for lubricants used in food processing, and covers two primary elements: It proves that a lubricant is manufactured in a hygienic environment, using both best practices and the safest ingredients. Like product registration, ISO ensures lubricant ingredients are safe in the event of incidental food contact.
Using ISO certified lubricants can help processors reduce their risk of contamination. It accounts for the lubricant and its ingredients, as well as the manufacturing process, handling, packaging and storage.
We are recognized and respected by regulatory agencies at local, state and federal levels. The Public Health and Safety Organization.
NSF provides a realistic cost package that includes a complete explanation of the certification costs, in advance of the project initiation. Open How does NSF handle white mineral oil registration? NSF continues to provide the conventional H1, H2 and H3 designations for food-grade lubricants; and indeed, both ISO certification and H1 registration can isi held by the same lubricant.
Lubricant Storage and Handling. We understand the third-party certification process and how to work with companies to achieve positive results. Just like the H1 classification, ingredients must come from the list of known food-safe products according to an appropriate listing such as Food and Drug Administration FDA regulation
