When Are Food-grade Lubricants Required? It is an independent, non-profit making organisation providing product certification. We have refined our certification process to make it faster and more straightforward while upholding our tradition of integrity and exceptional attention to detail.
Food manufacturers prevent contamination of their products and reduce waste whilst supplying safe products to major supermarkets and other distributors.
Toggle navigation Toggle search. The use of clear grease guns as well as the proper labelling and setup of appropriate storage areas may also be recommended. H1 lubricants are suitable for use on food processing equipment in areas where there is potential for the exposure of the lubricant to food or its packaging.
The ISO standard addresses those issues—and others. Supermarkets are also 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.
Testing Thorough external product testing is conducted annually in order to ensure that conformance to the requirements of ISO remains up to date and consistent. In order for a manufacturer to isi ISO certification, it is required to update its risk assessment policy.
Another product is fluid grease with a soft consistency that provides good lubrication to the friction point, along with a special thickener for good adhesion and corrosion protection to extend component life. We expect this to have a positive impact by reducing costs and timelines associated with the prior authorization process.
In addition to the requirements for H1, ISO accredited lubricant manufacturers must go through an unannounced annual auditing process to ensure that all products are made to strict hygiene standards, using good manufacturing practices. Any manufacturer applying for certification will need to go through the four lso process detailed below.
The positive effects of ISO are felt by many stakeholders: Auditors are reassured by the presence of accreditation as it allows full traceability of the lubricant manufacturing process. Your product can be certified to ISO in seven simple steps.
This relates to applications where it is possible for the lubricant to touch the product food, beverage, pharmaceutical, etc. Synthetic gear oils are available that are formulated to resist aging and oxidation, while extending service life and improving gear efficiency.
Like product registration, ISO ensures lubricant ingredients are safe in the event of incidental food contact.
With 211469 ISO2146 risk analysis on cleaning procedures is performed to ensure the separation from alternative industrial lubricants. To receive a quote, please contact us at nonfood nsf. NSF International offers ISO certification for lubricants used in specialized industries such as food, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and animal feed manufacturing.
It is dedicated to being a global leader in public health and safety-based risk management. Specifying Registered Products NSF International provides processors with free consultation on specifying registered and certified products. Our position as an independent organization, and our scientific and technical expertise in food safety spanning from farm to fork, have helped us become known as the most trusted name in food safety. Since our founding inNSF International has worked to build a tradition of integrity and neutrality focused on protecting and improving 2169 health.
A list of certified suppliers isp products can be found online at http: This ensures the chosen food-grade lubricant makes it into the correct lubrication point. ISO applies to all lubricants that could potentially contact food, cosmetics, ido, tobacco, animal-feed or related products such as packaging during processing.
Consumers are protected against the possibility of eating a product which is tainted with hazardous material. Step 2 requires a review by the assessing body e.
The NSF ISO Product Certification Program provides manufacturers with a point of distinction to use with their customers and provides assurance that the hygiene of every product has been independently verified by an NSF facility inspector and tested in our laboratories.
Like many voluntary standards, it has taken a while for mainstream adoption. Risk Assessment Risk assessments must be carried out to ensure that all potential hazards within the manufacturing process are identified. We understand the third-party certification process and how to work with companies to achieve positive results.
Back to Services by Industry: Its Londonderry, NH, facility took a number of steps to meet the standard—including a hygiene strategy that takes into account any chemical risks e. A lubricant with NSF H1 accreditation is acceptable for incidental food contact and can be used in and around food processing areas.
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 food and food-related products with the lubricant. Who does it affect and why? Selecting Lubricants for Pharmaceutical Facilities. NSF provides a realistic cost package that includes a complete explanation of the certification costs, in advance of the project initiation.
The ISO standard provides a detailed lubricant definition and requires the use of such lubricants for incidental contact—not only with food products, but also cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, tobacco and animal feed.

End-users benefit from assurance through third-party process audits and product analysis that the ISO compliant lubricants will consistently meet food safety requirements.
The first step on the way to ensuring that a lubricant is isi for ISO accreditation is to select ingredients that are food safe during initial development. 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. Then, inthe U.
