Why is certification important?

Hygienic food equipment certified according to EHEDG guideline

Equipment manufacturers and engineers who design processing plants and processing lines as well as company brands operate in accordance with strict safety standards that apply to the food industry. The European Hygienic Engineering & Design Group (EHEDG) has developed standards and methods for testing and certifying equipment in accordance with the latest research and state-of-the-art technologies.

EHEDG guidelines support parties in the food industry in ensuring high-quality production and processing equipment for the safety of all food products. EHEDG authorized laboratories perform extensive testing related to hygienic engineering and design standards and requirements established for equipment used in food production and processing.

We have extensive experience in providing expert testing and certification services for the food industry. Certify your equipment to recognized EHEDG standards.


Reliable and Competitive EHEDG Certification

EHEDG certification supports guidelines that help you reduce food safety risks through high-quality equipment and lower cleaning costs with clean-in-place (CIP) technology. The EHEDG logo and certification database are powerful marketing tools to differentiate you from the competition.  Show your commitment to excellence with a voluntary EHEDG certification.

Our experts support you with different test methods for different test schedules.

We offer complete services to support you with the EHEDG certification application. During testing, you will receive EHEDG design evaluations and equipment classification from our Authorized Evaluation Officers (AEO’s). If required, EHEDG clean-in-place, steam sterilizability and bacteria density testing methods are also implemented.

After our assessment of your application, you will receive a quote for the services. Evaluation of each product is based on document verification and physical testing. Equipment is rated for EL (equipment cleaned with liquids) or ED (equipment dry cleaned only) type status and is subject to the requirements and EHEDG test methods of the corresponding certification class.
