Another product is fluid grease with a soft consistency that provides good lubrication to the io point, along with a special thickener for good adhesion and corrosion protection to extend component life.

Specifically, NSF H1 accreditation indicates the specific lubricant is acceptable for incidental food contact and can be used in food processing areas. As you consider moving forward with ISO certification, an NSF representative is available to call or visit you, to walk you through the NSF certification process in greater detail.

Product Formulation Review 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.

Food manufacturers prevent contamination of their products and reduce waste whilst supplying safe products to major supermarkets and other distributors. All 21496 requires lubrication in order to keep it in good working condition.

Step 1 is simply an administrative step whereby the manufacturer submits details such as product name, manufacturing locations, container size, shelf life, etc. In following this practice, this authorization for rebranding of white oils has been handled in a manner identical to the way multi-ingredient formulations are handled. We expect this to have a positive impact by reducing costs and timelines associated with the prior authorization process.

214669 NSF H1 registration program is a continuation of the former USDA authorization program for lubricants used in food processing, and covers two primary elements: Thorough external product testing is conducted annually in order to ensure that conformance to the requirements of ISO remains up to date and consistent.


The onsite audit is conducted by a qualified representative of the assessing body such as NSF. Risk Assessment Risk assessments must be io out to ensure that all potential hazards within the manufacturing process are identified. The NSF certification policies contain all of the detail related to the NSF certification process and will be sent along with your quote jso. 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.

ISO is not a new standard; in fact, it came into effect in February It proves that a lubricant is manufactured in a hygienic environment, using both best practices and the safest ingredients.

Once the four stage process has been completed to the satisfaction of the NSF then the certification is awarded isp the lubricant packaging is authorised to display the ISO NSF Certification Mark. Synthetic gear oils are available that are formulated to resist aging and oxidation, while extending service life and improving gear efficiency. NSF provides food safety and quality solutions for processors.

The NSF was founded in to protect and improve human health on a global scale. Typical applications of H1 lubricants are the lubrication of machine parts and corrosion inhibition. 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.

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.

Create your own user feedback survey. FDA Listed Ingredients 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. This site uses cookies. Demonstrating that your production facility has an effective quality management system is an excellent starting point. It accounts for the lubricant and its ingredients, as well as the manufacturing process, handling, packaging and storage.

What You Need to Know About ISO 21469 and Food Safety

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. 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.


Lubricants manufacturers seek ISO accreditation as the highest accolade that can prove their suitability for food grade applications. Each facility also is subjected to an annual unannounced audit, at which time product samples are collected that must match the product baselines established during the initial certification process Step 6. 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.

These points ensure that NSF ISO compliant lubricant products will consistently meet food safety requirements; this is a significant benefit to the end-user.

Manufacturing site audits are carried out allowing the NSF to confirm that all the criteria for accreditation are met.

The goal of this holistic approach is to ensure the lubricant is not only manufactured in accordance with the standards, but that it is also delivered intact and free from outside contaminants. Just like the H1 classification, ingredients must come from the list of known food-safe products according to an appropriate listing such as Food and Drug Administration FDA regulation 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.
