What is it and who can be certified
FACE is the Federation of Associations of Celiacs of Spain, whose objective is to coordinate the member associations in order to defend the rights of celiac people.
The Guarantee Mark "Controlled by FACE" is a Food Safety protocol focused on guaranteeing that certified products contain < 10 ppm of gluten, which makes them suitable for people with celiac disease (gluten intolerant) .
It is a protocol focused on preventing the presence of gluten in certified products, which has numerous analytical checks carried out in laboratories accredited by ENAC and authorized by FACE.
ELS represented by the symbol of the Barred Ear, internationally recognized to identify gluten-free products, is a European protocol that guarantees that certified products meet the maximum content of < 20 ppm of gluten. This protocol is very useful for those companies that export their certified products to the European Union. If they are also exported outside the EU, the ELS protocol has international recognition, but in this case, the Certification Entity that carries out the audit must be an English Entity, which is the only one authorized.
To whom are they addressed? Who can be certified?
Both protocols can be certified together.
Qualyment Innovación S.L. has experience in the implementation of the Guarantee Mark "Controlled by FACE" and "ELS".
