The HACCP-concept can only work out with a careful cleaning and disinfection and haug bürsten follows these hygiene regulations with their hygienic brushes. The european federation of brushware manufacturer F.E.I.B.P. has established a charter and a logo for Professional Hygiene Brushware „PHB“ which will be assigned only to manufacturers of high quality professional brushware like haug bürsten is. The german association for the food quality control recommends haug hygienic brushes as well.
