ISO 8573-1 is used by some food and beverage plant engineers and facility managers to access the quality and verify the safety of compressed air for use in product manufacturing and packaging. With an umbrella of multiple sections and classes of requirements, the ISO standard can be used to define the appropriate and essential compressed air quality needs of food and beverage operations. Through its use, a company can meet the requirements of Safe Quality Food (SQF) and/or the Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) laws, rules and guidance as listed in Current Good Manufacturing Practice (cGMP, or the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA).
