Rocol has made it easier for food, drink and clean industry manufacturers using Foodlube to pass retailer, EFSIS and BRC audits by becoming the UK’s first ISO 21469:2006-certified lubricants producer.

The globally recognised ISO 21469:2006 certification provides credible, independent assurance that all Rocol products are formulated, manufactured and supplied hygienically and safely.

For any food and drink manufacturer using Foodlube lubricants, especially those reliant on leading retailers through long-term contracts, this provides a vital first step towards conforming with major supermarket, European Food Safety Inspection Service and British Retail Consortium audit requirements.

Products in the Foodlube range are already NSF-H1 registered, which specifies the hygiene requirements for the formulation, use and handling of lubricants that may incidentally come into contact with products during manufacture.

ISO 21469:2006 builds on the product-specific NSF-H1 standard to represent another important layer of safety approval.

It means that products are manufactured to stringent recipe and hygiene standards using good manufacturing practices, dedicated equipment and strict handling procedures.

Each product is hygiene assured as it has been independently verified by an NSF inspector and tested in their laboratories.

It is then deemed safe for incidental food contact and certified as being manufactured only from FDA-listed ingredients that are free from animal-derived materials, nut oils, soya, dairy and genetically modified ingredients.

As part of its ISO 21469 certification, Rocol provides risk assessments in the use of lubricants, conducts factory audits, helps customers develop and police effective quality-assurance procedures and monitors product composition through sampling and retesting.
