ITC
new gas chromatograph in laboratory of analytical chemistry

In August 2018 our laboratory of analytical chemistry purchased a brand new gas chromatograph, mass spectrometer Shimadzu GCMS-QP2020, equipped by a thermal desorption unit TD-30, which is used for analysis of emissions of organic substances.

 

The spectrometer has a superior sensitivity for organic substances in orders of micro-grams per kg of sample. The system is mainly used for analysis of volatile organic substances (VOC) and condensable substances (FOG) according to the requirements of automotive standard VDA 278, but also for emission measurement of polymer samples to investigate additive system, smell, NIAS (not-intentionally added substances in plastics) etc.

 

Contact for such types of analysis: Franky Puype, phone: +420 577 601 703, e-mail: fpuype@itczlin.cz

FachPack 2018

Dear business friends, we invite you to visit our exposition at the International Trade Fair for the packaging industry FachPack 2018, which will be held 25. 9. – 27. 9. 2018 in Nuremberg. Hall 9, Stand no. 9-211. Vouchers for entry are available, if you are interested, please contact Mrs Ing. Barbora Hajkova, email: bhajkova@itczlin.cz 


Analytical laboratory had implemented new methods for testing of volatile organic compounds (VOC) from car interior parts according to Hyundai and Toyota requirements, namely

Hyundai Engineering Standard - MS300-55 - Determination of volatile organic compounds from moulded parts in the vehicle interior

and

Toyota Engineering Standard TSM 0508G – Volatile component measurement method using sampling bag

Tests are using sampling bags for emission tests, followed by chromatography determination of emitted substances.
For further information and quotation please, contact Ing. Jitka Balakova, e-mail: jbakalova(at)itczlin.cz, phone: +420 577 601 453


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.

PRINCIPLES OF CERTIFICATION ACCORDING TO EN 15593

The issue of safety and health unobjectionability of packaging for foodstuffs has been the focus of attention of food producers and consumers for many years. The standard refers to the principles of EN ISO 9001, HACCP and ISO 22000 systems. A certificate issued by an independent certification body guarantees that the hygiene management system in the production of packaging for foodstuffs established in the company has been assessed and satisfies the requirements of the standard  EN 15593.

CERTIFICATION BENEFITS

  • A trustworthy guarantee of the management of hygiene in the production of packaging for foodstuffs certified by an independent third party
  • Contribution to the process of facilitating communication with trade chains

CERTIFICATION PROCESS

  • The certification process consists of the following basic phases:
  • Elaboration of documentation
  • Putting the management system into practice
  • Certification by the certification body
    • Assessment and registration of the client's application for certification
    • Signing an agreement for conducting a certification audit
    • Appointing a team of auditors
    • Preparing an audit plan
    • Verification of facts in the following stages:
      • a) Review of the client's documentation
      • b) Checking facts on site
    • Elaboration of a report on the certification audit result
    • Evaluation of the audit report by the certification body
    • Issuing the certificate
  • Surveillance audit
    • During the five year validity period of the certificate, a surveillance audit takes place once a year. Depending on the result of the surveillance audit, either a decision on confirmation of the certificate validity until the next surveillance, or a decision on suspension of the certificate is issued. In case of fundamental deviations from the requirements of standards, an extreme measure can be adopted, i.e. withdrawal of the certificate.
