This document serves as general guidance only, and the principles may be considered useful in their application in the production of safe food, and in the development of guidelines for the validation of specialized cleaning or inactivation processes.

This document describes the basic hygienic design and safe use of single-body double-seat ehevg valves.

It gives guidance on design, construction and installation so that it does not adversely affect food safety and quality. Products with a short shelf life, or whose shelf life is extended by cold storage or in-pack heat treatments, do not have to conform to such strict microbiological requirements as aseptically packaged foods Doc 3 discusses aseptic packing. Safe storage and distribution of water in food factories.

By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. See Doc 15 for a test procedure designed for moderately sized equipment. Assurance of quality and safety is an essential need for the continued good reputation of foodstuffs. Potential failure mechanisms and influences of eherg processes are also discussed. Micro-organisms which are ugidelines by product residues or biofilms are very difficult or impossible to inactivate and the same applies to process areas if resulting in a recontamination risk.

The type of product and the stage of the manufacturing process must also be taken into consideration. The objective was to provide a reliable dismountable joint which is guideelines at the product side under the conditions of processing, cleaning and sanitation.

As food safety does not end at the borders of Europe, the EHEDG actively promotes global harmonization of guidelines and standards. This page was last edited on 13 Septemberat Any cleaning liquid that leaks across such a seat will contaminate the product.


It is therefore critical to apply hygienic design considerations to both the process and machinery to prevent occurrence of such risks. It can serve as a guide for suppliers and users of this important component. See also Doc 21 on challenge tests.

However, it focuses upon sensors for the most common process parameters, particularly temperature, pressure, conductivity, flow, level, pH value, dissolved ehesg concentration and optical systems like turbidity guiidelines colour measurements.

It consists of two parts, namely, Management Practices and Guidance on ehed Control of Legionella spp. Hygienic Design Requirements for Processing of Fresh Fish Buy Buy Buy First Edition, October – The guideline is intended to provide guidance on hygienic design criteria for equipment manufacturers when designing the equipment and the plant for the fish industry during the procurement process and installation, plant design and microbiological sampling.

Materials covered include carbon-graphite, ceramics, elastomers guidelies metals. Second Edition, May – Using the general criteria for ehefg hygienic design of equipment identified in Doc 8, this paper illustrates the application of these criteria in the construction and fabrication of closed process equipment.

Food processing equipment that cannot be or does not need to be sterilised may need to be pasteurised to inactivate relevant vegetative micro-organisms and fungal spores. It is not the intention to be prescriptive in specific validation requirements.

Materials of construction for equipment in contact with food. Passivation of stainless steel.

Commissioning may include physical as well as microbiological tests. First Edition, April – This document provides guidance to the hygienic design of belt conveyors specifically for use in an environment where wet cleaning is mandatory, and is supplementary to the general requirements and standards for hygienic equipment.

The product water distribution system within the plant must be hygienically designed. Hygienic packing of food products NOTE: Liquid foods containing particulates are inherently more difficult to process than homogenous liquids due to heat transfer limitations in particulate liquid mixtures and the additional problems of transport and handling.


Thus, it is necessary to determine under which conditions equipment can be sterilised.

This paper sets the minimum requirements for pumps, homogenisers and dampening devices for hygienic and aseptic applications. To validate the bacterial retention fuidelines of sterilising grade hydrophobic membrane filters, a bacterial aerosol challenge test methodology was developed.

A method for the assessment of in-line pasteurisation of food processing equipment. It does not provide detailed guidance on specific manufacturing processes, products, buildings or equipment. First Edition, November – This guideline is intended to advise both, sensor designers and manufacturers as well as those in charge of production machinery, plants and processes about the appropriate ehwdg of sensors and the most suitable way for application in dry and wet processes.

Systems and components are frequently put together in a way that creates new hazards, especially icrobiological ones. Today, food process plants incorporate various multifunctional flow paths. Examples, with drawings, show how to avoid crevices, shadow zones and areas with stagnating product, and how to connect and position equipment in a process line to ensure unhampered draining and cleaning in-place.

This document is superseded by Doc 35, recently published.

Additional tests are specified for commissioning of machines for aseptic packing. Supply systems for process air, compressed air and exhaust air systems such as grease filter systems or dust removal units are excluded from the scope of this document.
