FDA Food and Drug Administration
The FDA is the United States government agency responsible for the regulation of food (for both humans and animals), dietary supplements, drugs (human and veterinary), cosmetics, medical devices (human and animal), biological products, and blood products.
In the case that concerns us, we want to highlight the regulations related to rubber materials and fluorocarbon resins (PTFE-DuPont).
21 CFR 177.2600 · Rubber articles intended for repeated use.
According to Code of Federal Regulations, title 21, volume 3, Part 177, Section 2600
Rubber articles for repeated use can be used safely in the production, manufacture, packaging, processing, preparation, treatment, transport or handling of food.
21 CFR 177.1550 · Articles of perfluorocarbon resins (PTFE-DuPont).
According to Code of Federal Regulations, title 21, volume 3, Part 177, Section 1550
Perfluorocarbon resins identified in section 1550 may be used safely as articles or components intended to come into contact with food.
The FDA does not normally approve the compounds of the material. It is the responsibility of the material manufacturer to produce food grade materials according to the FDA ingredients list and to establish if they pass the extraction requirements.
CPI Sealing certifies its NBR, EPDM and FKM compounds for use according to FDA regulations for the manufacture of FDA o-rings Y FDA molded parts.
ACS Accreditation of Conformity Sanitaire
The Accreditation de Conformité Sanitaire (ACS) is a French sanitary standard that applies to drinking water systems.
The standard affects rubber and plastic materials intended to come into contact with drinking water supply systems.
The applicable criteria are established in the French standard AFNOR XP P41-250, Part 1-3.
NSF is a non-profit organization, known throughout the world for providing certification services in the areas of health and safety.
NSF registration assures official inspectors, consumers, and end users of the safety of products intended for food processing and storage applications. The evaluation process includes a toxicological inspection of the ingredients and a review of the accuracy of the labeling and the material safety data sheet. In some cases, a toxicological test may be required.
NSF/ANSI Standard 51, entitled “Food Equipment Materials”. This standard establishes the minimum health and food protection requirements that must be met by materials used in food manufacturing equipment for marketing. No physical test is required, but an analysis of its formulation is required.
NSF/ANSI Standard 61, entitled “Health Effects of Components of Drinking Water Treatment Systems”
To meet this standard, sealing materials must go through a third-party certification process, which requires full formula disclosure, toxicological analysis, and NSF review.
WRAS Water Regulations Advisory Scheme
WRACE is the UK Water Industry approval system. It is important to understand that approval WRAS consists of two requirements covering non-metallic materials in contact with drinking water and mechanical performance. Among the materials that we highlight are natural and synthetic rubbers (NBR, Neoprene, EPDM), compact and cellular silicones.
WRc-NSF It is the UK's largest testing laboratory for water connections.
The suitability of non-metallic products to come into contact with water intended for human consumption and their possible effects on water quality are covered by the BS6920:2000 standard.
The standard requires a formulation analysis, a microbial test, an extraction test and a hot water test.
KTW Kunststoffe im Trinkwasser (DVGW)
The German Agency for Water and Gas DVGW (Deutsche Vereinigung des Gas- und Wasserfaches), has defined a series of recommendations for plastic materials and other non-metallic materials used in the transport and in contact with hot and cold drinking water, through a test certificate called KTW (Kunststoffe und Trinkwasser)
Rubber components, especially gaskets, are widely used in potable water applications. The tightness of the water supply lines is ensured and they have to guarantee their operation for decades. At the same time, contact with drinking water must not influence the quality, nor the organoleptic properties (taste, texture, smell and color) of the water negatively.
The approval includes an extraction test and a taste test, as well as a record of the permitted ingredients.
At CPI-PRODYSOL we base the quality of our products on 6 basic principles:
