Guideline Development

Guideline Development

The EHEDG guidelines are developed by more than 400 active experts in our Working Groups which are gathering the know-how from food industries, food equipment manufacturers and academia. The co-authors share their particular knowledge with the other experts for drafting or updating the EHEDG guideline contents in order to give the readers practical guidance at hand.  

When having identified a topic of interest to the relevant industries, all EHEDG members are welcome to send in to the Secretariatnew guideline or revision proposal (PDF). The topic will be subject to approval by the Product Portfolio Sub-Committee and the EHEDG ExCo.

Upon acceptance of a proposal, the document development process (PDF) is started and the Working Group is established by identifying a lead author (Chair) and members with the expertise required either upon invitation or by means of a call for experts.
