Certifications

Certified O-rings? What does that mean?

Eur-O-rings has several certifications at its disposal. Some equipment can also be certified for a specific sector. A good example of such a sector is the food and drink industry. The following two best-known certificates apply:

Food and drink Industry. We have various certificates or approvals for the food and drink Industry. These certificates/approvals are there for the safety of humans or animals and for the legislation. These certificates and approvals are checked on the basis of various requirements. Here are the two most important.

FDA
FDA stands for: The marking guarantees that the product meets the requirements of the European cohesive directives. FDA – The Food and Drug Administration is an agency of the federal government in the United States, which monitors the quality and safety of food and related matters, among other things. Also, it has the following requirements to be FDA worthy:
• Preventive Controls Rules for Human and Animal Food.
• Produce Safety Rule.
• Foreign Supplier Verification Program (FSVP) Rule.
• Accredited Third Party Certification.
• Sanitary Transportation Rule.
• Intentional Adulteration Rule.
• Complying with FSMA.

EC1935/2004
In addition to FDA, there is also a European certificate/approval called EC1935/2004. The EC1935/2004 has been in existence since 1 April 2009 and is monitored by, among others, the Dutch Food and Consumer Product Safety Authority (NVWA).

FDA and EC1935/2004 are the most important Food and Drink Industry certificates/approvals. The O-rings are therefore extensively tested for migration and extraction, among other things.
We supply the following compound/materials with these certificates and approval:
• NBR
