ISO 21469 is a recognized international standard that focuses on hygiene requirements for oil and lubricants with occasional product contact. This refers to the specification of regulations for the composition, manufacture, use and handling of lubricants that may come into contact with foodstuffs.

The ISO 21469 is often combined with ISO 9001 and/or ISO 22000. Thanks to the structure of these standards, both management systems can be fully integrated.

By obtaining this certificate, your organization shows that your lubricant components have been assessed as food-safe, that your product and packaging descriptions are complete and correct and that your food-safe production is guaranteed.
