NeXtgen II Passes BISSC Third-Party Verification Inspection

NeXtgen II has been third party verified by BISSC

The NeXtgen II has been reapproved as Third-Party Verified from BISSC (Baking Industry Sanitation Standards Committee). BISSC is a nonprofit corporation that works closely with the American Society of Baking Z50 Committee to develop an American National Standards Institute (ANSI) standard for the design of bakery equipment. The ANSI standard provides a guideline for manufacturers to adhere to when designing equipment to ensure proper sanitation and food safety.

BISSC was started in 1949 to develop voluntary standards for the design and construction of bakery equipment. Those standards are the basis for what is recognized as the definitive sanitation standards used today for all equipment used in the bakery industry.

In 1966 the BISSC Office of Certification was established to easily identify equipment as conforming to BISSC standards. The Office of Certification offers two equipment certification programs to manufacturers who build their equipment to the ANSI/ASB/Z50.2-2012 Sanitation Standard for Bakery Equipment.

The first certification program is Certification. This applies to manufacturers who design and manufacture their equipment in accordance to the ANSI/ASB/Z50.2-2012 Sanitation Standard for the Design of Bakery Equipment, in turn they will be able to display the BISSC certified symbol on the equipment.

The other certification program is Third-Party Verification. Manufacturers who are already registered and certified by BISSC can request a third-party inspection by a BISSC approved independent testing agency to verify that the equipment is BISSC compliant. Once the manufacturer passes the third-party test, they can display the BISSC Verified symbol on the equipment.

The NeXtgen II patented open frame sanitary design continues the Arrowhead Conveyor tradition of high quality, user friendly and reliable equipment. This model has been Third-Party Verified by BISSC, and is an ideal conveyor for use in any sanitary food processing line where food safety is a primary concern.

The NeXtgen II Sanitary Conveyor system also offers a significant benefit by being a truly modular constructed conveyor. The conveyor elements can be easily reconfigured to meet your challenging production line changes. If your production environment can benefit from conveyors that are safe, sanitary and easy to clean, then the choice is easy – NeXtgen II – the right choice.
