Internationally, there is no uniform regulation. However, the H1 standard, in particular, has largely established itself as a globally recognized standard for lubricants. This was originally defined by the USDA (U.S. Department of Agriculture) in the U.S. in the 1960s. Institutions like the NSF or InS register lubricants according to this standard. H1 registered lubricants are to be used at CCPs (critical control points). As a CCP, the HACCP (hazard analysis and critical control points) considers the lubrication points that are above or to the side of the food line and lubrication points below the food line that are under pressure. In the meantime, many producers in the food industry and other relevant industries have defined all lubrication points as CCPs to prevent contamination of non-H1 lubricants with H1 lubricants.
