Supporting your Compliance Needs
METTLER TOLEDO Safeline test samples enable your business to comply with Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) requirements and the broader needs of external food safety regulations and standards.
Certified test samples can support compliance with the following Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP)-based Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI)-recognised standards, which include but are not limited to:
Food and beverage based standards:
- The British Retail Consortium (BRC v6) Global Standard for Food Safety
- International Food Standard (IFS v6)
- The Foundation for Food Safety Certification 22000 (FSSC 22000)
- Safe Quality Food 2000 Code 7.2 (SQF 2000)
- Dutch Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points (Dutch HACCP)
Other schemes do exist but the five schemes listed above equate to probably over 90% of the adopted standards currently being applied.
Pharmaceutical based standards:
- 21 CFR Part 210 - GMP Predicate Rule
- 21 CFR Part 211 - GMP Predicate Rule
- 21 CFR Part 11 - Electronic Records & Signatures
- Good Automated Manufacturing Practice (GAMP)

Consistency and Quality Guaranteed
All precision test spheres used in METTLER TOLEDO Safeline’s metal test samples conform to ANSI/AFBMA Std 10 or DIN 5401. The manufacturing process to incorporate the spheres into a usable test sample carrier is conducted in accordance with ISO9001:2000 accreditation. This means you can be sure that every test sample is accurate, consistent and fit for purpose.
Certified To Meet Compliance Needs
All METTLER TOLEDO Safeline test samples can be supplied with a formal certificate of conformance confirming size, manufacturing standards, authenticity and providing the means of a traceable history of manufacture. The certificate can form part of formal records for use in proving due diligence has been exercised if required.
Configurable Test Kits To Suit Your Needs
Test samples are also available in test kit packs for even greater convenience. Kits can contain up to 12 test samples of varying sizes and materials.
The regular testing of the performance of metal detection inspection equipment is an essential part of any well designed quality management system in the food or pharmaceutical industry.
Having the correct test pieces available to conduct the testing ensures the performance validation data collected is accurate and consistent supporting regulatory compliance and meeting due diligence obligations.
To assist in this testing process METTLER TOLEDO Safeline can provide a comprehensive range of certifiable test samples. These are available in a selection of materials, sizes and carriers, for use in any metal detection application including conveyor inspection systems, gravity fall and pipeline systems.
