Products are classified based on related product families e. The 21496 scrutiny involved with NSF ISO catches factors that can be overlooked, such as the process of switching from the production of one formulation to another.
ISO addresses hygiene requirements for isso used in a broad range of industries food, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, tobacco, animal feedand provides ingredient criteria in addition to 21CFR, guidance for risk assessment and product testing, criteria for labeling and requirements for good manufacturing practices.

The first step on the way to ensuring that a lubricant is suitable for ISO accreditation is to select ingredients that are food safe during initial development. Get audit and test results online. The ISO program evaluates the lubricant in terms of: Once complete, the formulation is submitted to the NSF for assessment against the H1 standard.

For example, one system 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. All machinery requires lubrication in order to keep it in good working condition. ISO applies oso all lubricants that could potentially contact food, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, tobacco, animal-feed or related products such as packaging during processing.
ISO 21469 Certification for Lubricants
We have refined our certification process to make it faster and more straightforward while upholding our tradition of integrity and exceptional attention to detail. The Public Health and Safety Organization. Step 5 allows for the issuance of accredit certification.
Like product registration, ISO ensures lubricant ingredients are safe in the event of incidental food contact. The onsite audit is conducted iiso a qualified representative of the assessing body such as NSF.

It also provides an internationally recognized benchmark for companies to measure their product 214469. The manufacture of food, beverages and pharmaceuticals adds an extra level of complexity due to the strict food safety regulations that govern the industry.

Certification Process NSF International offers ISO certification for lubricants used in specialized industries such as food, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and animal feed manufacturing. It certifies that the product has been formulated from FDA approved ingredients but does not regulate the manufacturing process and relies on the honesty of the manufacturer. 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.
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. Typical applications of H1 lubricants are the lubrication of machine parts and corrosion inhibition. The formulation review for ISO is used to make sure that all the component ingredients of a food grade lubricant meet the desired standard and criteria for certification.
What is ISO 21469 certification?
Grouping products into classes based on their chemical constituents helps to reduce the amount of compliance testing required as part of obtaining and maintaining ISO certification. 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.
Once the four stage process has been completed to the satisfaction of the NSF then the certification is awarded and the lubricant packaging is authorised to display the ISO NSF Certification Mark.
Single point lubricators may be recommended to provide a slow but continuous and defined volume of lubricant to an application point to minimize outside contamination. We expect this to have a positive impact by reducing costs and timelines associated with the prior authorization process. NSF International provides processors with free consultation on specifying registered and certified products.
This practice will go into effect immediately and does not have any impact on companies who wish to register white mineral oils as HX-1, as that option is still readily available nor will it impact any products currently registered with the authorization in place.
In order to receive the NSF H1 accreditation and be authorised for use where incidental food contact may occur, a lubricant must meet the category requirements that cover the formulation of the product, its labelling and a review of the proposed end-use.
