NSF announces first company in North America to earn ISO 21469 certification (11/13)
ISO 21469 specifies hygiene requirements for the formulation, manufacture, use and handling of lubricants, which may come into contact with products during manufacturing or processing. The international standard applies to lubricants intended for use in food production, as well as cosmetic, pharmaceutical and animal feed industries.
“Certification to ISO 21469 by an independent, third party provides lubricant manufacturers with a means to obtain international acceptance for their products,” said Sarah Krol, NSF Business Unit Manager. “By obtaining certification, Summit is emphasizing their overall commitment to safety.”
