comply with the revised criteria according to EU Commission decision 2018/1702 from 08th of November 2018 and were therefore added to the new LuSC-list. Therefore they are classified for use in a lubricant formulation eligible for the European Ecolabel without limit by biodegradation and aquatic toxicity.

NSF International is an independent organisation with the objective of developing public standards and certification programs. Those shall support the protection of food, water, consumer products and the environment worldwide.

This general alignment leads to different services for a broad range of industries covered by NSF. One area of NSF's work, which is relevant for us as a producer of esters, is formed by the certification of Non-food Compounds. Non-food Compounds are used during the production of food and beverage but are no foodstuffs themselves. As the products are not manufactured according to the strict regulations of the food industry but food contact is possible during their usage, NSF created a certification program for those components.

As the area of Non-food Compounds is also very extensive, categories for the different types of products were defined. For us the category HX-1 from the lubricant sector is relevant. This category includes all products which can be used as ingrendients in H1 lubricants (general incidental food contact possible).

We are pleased to tell you that our product portfolio does also include esters which are certified according to the standards of NSF category HX-1:

LIGALUB 18 TMP A HX
LIGALUB L 103 D HX

EXCiPACT is a certification especially for excipients.  It shall ensure that standards of Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) as well as standards of Good Distribution Practice (GDP) are met.

Food Safety Management System

Food safety is a global issue , not only because of the implications for public health, but also because of the impact on international trade. Due to the globalisation of food production and provision, food chains are becoming longer and more complex.  Thus, the risk of safety related incidents is increasing. Effective and harmonised food safety systems regulate and ensure the safety and suitability of food at every link of the supply chain. For this, the ISO developed the standard FSSC 22000 (ISO 22000).  

In addition to our certifications ISO 9001, ISO 14001, Halal, Kosher and GMP + (HACCP), since 25.01.2011, Peter Greven Nederland CV is also a certified manufacturer of additives for the food industry according to FSSC 22000. The corresponding certificate can be obtained here.

In December 2013 Peter Greven successfully completed the GMP+ certification for the animal feed industry.

GMP stands for " Good Manufacturing Practices". 1992 was the starting point of the current GMP+ Feed Certification Scheme. In the following, it developed through the integration of requirements in terms of quality management according to ISO, HACCP and other elements to form a fully-fledged certification system.

The + stands for the integration of HACCP: Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points.

The COSMOS-standard signature is a consumer guarantee for organic and natural cosmetics and covers in detail all aspects of the sourcing, manufacturing, marketing and control of cosmetic products.

  2. Using natural resources responsibly, and respecting the environment.
  3. Using processing and manufacturing that are clean and respectful of human health and the environment.
  4. Integrating and developing the concept of “green chemistry”.
