|European Hygienic Engineering & Design Group (EHEDG)|
|The European Hygienic Engineering & Design Group (EHEDG) is a consortium of equipment manufacturers, food industries, research institutes as well as public health authorities and was founded in 1989 with the aim to promote hygiene during the processing and packing of food products.
The principal goal of EHEDG is the promotion of safe food by improving hygienic engineering and design in all aspects of food manufacture.
EHEDG actively supports European legislation, which requires that handling, preparation processing and packaging of food is done hygienically using hygienic machinery and in hygienic premises (EC Directive 2006/42/EC for Machinery, EN 1672-2 and EN ISO 14159 Hygiene requirement).

|European IPPC Bureau (EIPPCB)|
|The European IPPC Bureau is an action of the Sustainable Production and Consumption Unit of the Institute for Prospective Technological Studies (IPTS). The IPTS is one of the seven scientific institutes of the European Commission's Joint Research Centre (JRC).
The European Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control (IPPC) Bureau was set up to organise an exchange of information between Member States and industry on Best Available Techniques (BAT), associated monitoring and developments in them.
The European IPPC Bureau is an output oriented team which produces reference documents on Best Available Techniques, called BREFs. BREFs are the main reference documents used by competent authorities in Member States when issuing operating permits for the installations that represent a significant pollution potential in Europe. There are about 50000 of these installations in Europe.|
