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 Secretariat a new 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.
