EN 15593 - hygiene for foodstuffs packaging

Products certification, CE » Voluntary certification

Providing health safety of products is the crucial point and obligation of each manufacturing organization in the food chain. In past, the issues of health safety were primarily addressed by food companies manufacturing the final product intended for direct consumption. As the market and consumer requirements for ensuring health safety have grown, the producers of raw and packaging materials gradually started to be involved in the process as well.  At the present time, the standard ČSN EN 15593 can be used to ensure and assess health safety of packaging materials. The standard is based on the requirements of the standards ISO 9001 and ISO 22000 and it lays down the requirements for hygiene management system for manufacturers and suppliers of foodstuff packaging including storage and hygiene. The standard describes both the management system and the hygienic instructions for packaging manufacturers as a part of the food chain. This standard is an opportunity for the companies producing packaging for foodstuff industry to demonstrate and give their customers adequate evidence of their capability to identify and manage risks related to their products.
