ISO 21469 is an internationally recognized standard which specifies hygiene requirements for the formulation, manufacture, use and handling of lubricants which during manufacture process can come into incidental contact (e.g. through heat transfer, load transmission, lubrication or the corrosion protection of machinery) with products and packaging used in the food, food-processing, cosmetics, pharmaceutical, or animal-feeding-stuffs industries.

Topics covered in the ISO 21469 are:

  • hygiene requirements;
  • correct product description and packaging;
  • risk assessment in the whole production process.

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

What are the advantages of an ISO 21469 certification?

  • Lubricants are controlled as food safe;
  • The product description is correct, packaging ensures food safety;
  • Risk assessment is undertaken in the whole production process.

For whom is the ISO 21469 intended?

ISO 21469 is suitable for any organization (large and small) that uses lubricants that come into (incidental) contact with food, feed, medicines or cosmetic products.
