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 9001:2008 and ISO 22000:2005 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.

Database of certificates        


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.


  • 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


  • 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.
