Welding certificate HDN / PED

HDN stands for ‘Hygienic Design Network’ and is a collaborative partnership of companies in the food industry, ranging from component suppliers and system integrators to food manufacturers. Goudsmit is a member of the HDN, as are some of our suppliers and big customers in the food industry.

The goal of HDN is to prevent problems concerning the production of food products at the end of the production line. The companies concerned realize that this can only be achieved if the entire supply chain is involved. The HDN method provides a uniform interpretation of standards and requirements, with a practical approach to meeting the requirements. The quality is guaranteed through a certification system for designers, engineers, welders and inspectors.

Our hygienic welders have been HDN/PED certified since February 2017. To obtain this certification the welders had to complete theory and practical tests. All the welds had to pass the X-ray tests for the European Pressure Equipment Directive (PED). With their HDN certification they may weld hygienic systems and also have a certificate that allows them to weld pressure equipment.
