EHEDG Advanced Course on Hygienic Design

  • Aristo Amsterdam 100, Teleportboulevard Amsterdam The Netherlands (map)


The course provides knowledge of and insight into the hygienic design of equipment and processes for the food, feed and pharmaceutical industry, to better fulfil the wishes of purchasers and retailers. These include minimising down time, maintenance, cleaning costs and environmental impact, but also efficient cleaning, optimal product safety and constant product quality. The design should comply with present legislation and standards, but can also anticipate future changes.


The course is meant for mechanical engineers, constructors, draughtsmen, project managers and sales-engineers, active with machine building for the food industry, including the engineering offices. Participants can originate from different sub-branches.

The course is also excellent for the technical and quality assurance staff of the food, feed and pharmaceutical industry itself.


The participants should have a minimum of two years of relevant practical experience. Participants with equivalent training or experience may be able to participate after consultation with the course director.


The course duration is 4 days, starting at Tuesday 3 December 2019 at 13.30 and ending Friday 6 December 2019 at 12.30.


The course is given from a very practical viewpoint. The theoretical fundamentals of the different subjects are presented in a short and concise way, continuously relating to practice by means of examples on video or pictures or samples. By studying cases of equipment present and in drawings on iPads the participants get the opportunity to apply the knowledge. The course gives you tools to solve hygienic problems within your own organisation. Because of the small groups the course is very interactive.


The cost of the course is Euro 2,345 ex. VAT, including handout, breakfast, coffee, tea, lunches (full days), three times dinner and travelling during the Course.
When a company is EHEDG member its employees are entitled to a Euro 200 reduction. This does not apply to individual EHEDG members.
