4th – 6th of March 2020
Tetra Pak, Lund, Sweden

Open information and program as PDF


The advanced course gives knowledge and insight in hygienic design of process equipment, lines and facilities in food, biotech and pharma industry as well as their suppliers. Investment in hygienic design can when optimally used give optimal product safety and constant product quality as well as lead to diminished down time, maintenance costs, cleaning costs and environmental impact. It deals with how to fulfil present legislation and standards and anticipate future changes.


The advanced course is originally targeted for service producers in food, biotech and pharma industry e.g. mechanical engineers. It is also meant for managers and supervisors, constructors, project managers as well as sales engineers, who are active in using, building or servicing equipment for industries relying on hygienic or aseptic processing. The advanced course is excellent for the technical and quality assurance staff, who needs knowledge in hygienic engineering, in these industries.


The course is given in English from a practical point of view. The theoretical fundamentals of the different subjects are given in a concise way, continuously relating these to practice through pictures or examples. Design guidelines are dealt with in terms of the basic properties experimental evidence. The course gives you tools to solve hygienic problems within your own organization. The course is interactive due to training in small groups. On the last course day, there will be an Exam (course material allowed). EHEDG certificate will be mailed to approved participants attending the full course.
