UN CPC 43921 includes many different types of machinery. The scope of this PCR is limited to machinery related to packaging of liquid food products since requirements on hygiene and functionality are very specific for filling and packaging machines handling liquid food.

  • machinery for filling, closing, sealing, capsuling or labelling bottles, cans, boxes, bags or other containers for liquid
    food;
  • other packing or wrapping machinery used in liquid food filling lines
