Over deze norm
||Machines voor de voedselindustrie
This part of EN 1672 specifies common hygiene requirements for machinery used in preparing and processing food for human and, where relevant, animal consumption to eliminate or minimise the risk of infection, illness, contagion or injury arising from this food. It identifies the hazards which are relevant to the use of such food processing machinery and describes design methods and information for use for the elimination or reduction of these risks. This standard does not deal with the hygiene related risks to personnel arising from the use of the machine, such as the use of cleaning agents, steam etc. which are dealt with in prEN 1672-1:1994. This standard applies to food processing machines listed in the normative annex A used for batch, continuous, open and closed processing using any kind of energy for motive power, heating or control. NOTE : Separate hygiene requirements are contained in other EU Directives. This standard applies primarily to machines which are manufactured after its date of issue. In addition, the principles contained in this standard can be applied to other machinery and equipment used to process food where similar risks apply.
