Consulting for machine conformity with Regulation (EC) no. 1935/2004 (MOCA framework)

The MOCA standard for designing and building machinery intended to come into contact with food (or pharmaceutical or cosmetic products) references Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC along with Regulation (EC) no. 1935/2004 or the MOCA framework.

Our service for food processing equipment conformity with the MOCA standard provides complete support alongside conformity with the Machinery Directive and corresponding application of the CE marking and verification of the MOCA framework requirements, including drawing up the technical file and specifications regarding the materials used to build the machinery and other materials in contact with food, such as paints, solvents, plastics, electrodes, and fastening systems.

The procedure for MOCA certification that we offer is structured on a series of targeted steps:

  • Preliminary inspection and issuing documents on any conformity gaps in terms of the MOCA requirements
  • Consulting to implement technical modifications to the machine layout
  • Collecting pertinent documents, including supplier MOCA declarations
  • Helping issuing CE and MOCA certification

FAQ

Manufacturers of machinery intended to come into contact with food or with pharmaceutical or cosmetic products must follow good manufacturing practices in conformity with what is established by Regulation (EC) no. 1935/2004 (or MOCA framework) to prevent and mitigate the risk of contamination from external agents or substances, specifying in the technical file the materials used to build the machinery, which materials can come into contact with food or with pharmaceutical or cosmetic products, and how the machine is to be cleaned to reduce the risk of contamination.

MOCA certification is obtained after having verified equipment conformity with the requirements in Regulation (EC) no. 1935/2004 and the Machinery Directive and having made any changes necessary to meet these requirements.

The cost of MOCA certification varies based on the complexity of the equipment to certify and on whether any changes need to be made to the design in order to make the product compliant with the standards of the Machinery Directive and Regulation (EC) no. 1935/2004.
