Hygiene for foodstuff packaging

Published in May 2008. EN 15593 establishes a certifiable basis for hygiene management, and contains the requirements of food manufacturers and grocers in Europe, in one standard. It provides a systematic approach to ensure product safety and process control. The focus of this standard is the primary packaging of foodstuffs, but also takes into consideration the secondary and tertiary packaging.


  • Increased consumer confidence for both consumers and commercial enterprises
  • Increased product safety and reduced product liability risks
  • Can replace the need for multiple certifications to ISO 9001, HACCP as per EU (VO) 852 or Codex Alimentarius
