Valves compliant with Regulation (EC) No. 1935/2004 and the FDA Directive

At GEFA, we ensure that our valves meet the highest standards to guarantee the health and safety of consumers. Our valves and/or individual components are therefore available in accordance with the regulations of (EC) No. 1935/2004 and FDA. By complying with these regulations, we ensure that our valves are free from harmful substances and have no undesirable effects on the quality of the products.

EC 1935/2004

Regulation (EC) No. 1935/2004 regulates the requirements for materials and articles that may come into contact with food. (EC) No. 1935/2004 stipulates that food contact materials must neither impair the taste of food nor endanger human health. This is regulated in the Regulation on individual measures for all materials, such as plastics, elastomers, coatings and paints. This applies not only to the individual components but also to the entire unit, right through packaging.

The FDA (Food and Drug Administration) is a US authority responsible for regulating and monitoring food, drugs, medical devices, cosmetics and tobacco products.

The FDA sets standards and regulations to ensure the health and safety of consumers.
