Goudsmit Magnetic Systems is member of the European Hygienic Engineering & Design Group (EHEDG). EHEDG is a consortium of equipment manufacturers, food industries, research institutes and public health authorities and was founded in 1989 with the important aim of promoting hygiene during the processing and packing of food products and chemicals.
Compliance with the criteria, standards and guidelines they have established lead to improvement of hygienic engineering. Test methods they have developed determine whether a device has truly been designed properly.
In the interest of improving hygienic engineering, EHEDG has established a number of criteria and developed standards and directives that must be adhered to. EHEDG actively supports the European legislation, which requires that handling, preparation, processing and packaging of food be performed hygienically using hygienic machines and in hygienic areas.
Goudsmit bases its designs for food products and chemicals on these EHEDG standards and is the very first magnet supplier to join EHEDG.
