Announcing that its 13 evaporator and air cooler series have been certified with the TÜV HACCP certificate, Güntner explained that as of January 1, 2006, the implementation of the HACCP concept (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point Concept) is compulsory for all food business operators, according to the Regulation (EC) No 852/2004 on hygiene of foodstuffs. Güntner added that health risks were reduced by implementing the concept, and the regulation was valid for all companies producing, processing or selling foodstuffs on a commercial basis.
Explaining that TÜV provided HACCP certificates for units and machines that are used for the kinds of applications listed above, Güntner added that units with the TÜV HACCP certificate had to comply with strict specifications for all ranges of applications. Güntner claimed that in obtaining the certification, it had, therefore, anticipated its customers’ requirements.
According to Güntner, simple cleaning procedure was the central point of the TÜV HACCP specifications. Keeping this in focus, said Güntner, its main series, GHN, GHF and GDF/GDM, as well as different refrigerant types used in these unit series, had been tested and certified. The customers, therefore, could now be sure that its units were suitable, especially for foodstuff applications, claimed Güntner.
