International standard for lubricants in food processing

International standard for lubricants in food processing
While the previous standard EN 1672-2:2005 for hygiene requirements to be met by food-processing machinery had only stipulated the use of "food-grade" lubricants, the ISO standard 21469 provides a detailed definition of these lubricants, and its requirements for product contact apply now also to cosmetic products, pharmaceuticals, tobacco and animal feed.

Based on the ISO 21469, the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) has developed a certification method. The new certification method offered by NSF enables lubricant manufacturers to have themselves certified according to ISO 21469 by an independent and recognised institution.

Kluber Lubrication has opted to live up to this international standard and entered an intensive dialogue with NSF for this purpose. "Our goal is to have one of the most comprehensive H1 lubricant portfolios with worldwide availability certified," explains David Laing, industry group manager at Kluber.
