A description of ISO certification for food grade lubricants. ISO is used in addition to NSF-H1 to guarantee food safety. Some of you may have read details of the standard ISO which covers ‘ Safety of Machinery – Lubricants with Incidental Product Contact – Hygiene. ISO (E). PDF disclaimer.

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. Like the pre-existing NSF H1, H2 and H3 designations, ISO is all about trying to insure that consumers are protected from the deleterious effects of contaminating isi and food-related products with the lubricant.
It also provides an internationally recognized benchmark for companies to measure their product quality. Food and Drug Administration FDA implemented the Food Safety Modernization Act, which shifted the focus from responding to food contamination problems to preventing them. We then offer support on best practices to the end user that include the proper storage, handling and jso of these lubricants to further mitigate these types of risks and deliver more than food safety.

What You Need to Know About ISO 21469 and Food Safety
Back to Services by Industry: Since our founding inNSF International has worked to build a tradition of integrity and neutrality focused on protecting and improving human health.

Typical applications of H1 lubricants are the lubrication of machine parts and corrosion inhibition. Lubricants manufacturers seek ISO accreditation as the highest accolade that can prove their suitability for food grade applications. The standard includes H1 lubricants but is broader in scope, also covering lubricants used outside of food processing. When Are Food-grade Lubricants Required? ISO applies to all lubricants that could potentially contact food, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, tobacco, animal-feed or related products such as packaging during processing.
Samples are taken from different manufacturing batches as well as any repackaged products to verify isl the supplier has appropriate control over the manufacturing process.
Supermarkets are 21496 increasingly insisting that their suppliers use lubricants that do not contain mineral hydrocarbons Consumers are protected against the possibility of eating a product which is tainted with hazardous material. The ISO certification process also reviews the level of quality control applied to the formulation, manufacturing, distribution and storage of the lubricant to ensure it complies with the highest standards of hygiene.
Once ISO certification is achieved it proves that a lubricant is manufactured in a hygienic environment, using both best practices and the safest ingredients. Certification costs are related to the services provided and include fees for facility audits, product testing, documentation review and project management services. The NSF was founded in to protect and improve human health on a global scale.
Understanding the Changing Requirements for Food-grade Lubricants. For example, one isso can provide grease from one reservoir to multiple bearings—another can deliver oil from one tank that can feed different drip nozzles for a baking oven chain. Risk Assessment Risk assessments must be carried out to ensure that all potential hazards within the manufacturing process are identified. This ensures the chosen food-grade lubricant makes it into the correct lubrication point.
