The sector of the food industry is increasingly professionalised and oriented to the requirements of food safety and hygiene. An important link in the control of hazards in the food chain is the transport of goods and food products by road.

At TRUCK WASH EUROPA, S.L., we meet these needs. We carry out the cleaning and disinfection of vehicles, fulfilling all the regulatory requirements, using approved products for the food industry and having a human team of professionals with optimal training. All our disinfections are accompanied by official certificates.

In the cleaning and disinfection of exteriors and interiors of trucks, at TRUCK WASH EUROPA, S.L. we use only biocide products authorised for the food industry. Specifically, they are those that Annex V of Regulation (EU) No. 528/2012, and Article 1 of Royal Decree 830/2010 classifies as products of type 4 (TP4): Disinfectants for surfaces that are in contact with food and feed.

Companies that perform treatments with these biocidal products must meet the following requirements:

  • They must be registered in the Official Register of Establishments and Biocidal Services (ROESB) of each Autonomous Community where they operate.
  • Their staff must comply with the training required by the legislation for the applicators of biocidal treatments and technical managers of biocidal services to exercise their functions.

Truck wash centres of  TRUCK WASH EUROPA, S.L. are authorised and registered in the ROESB.

All our staff who use biocidal products have the required regulatory training and we maintain a continuous training programme that allows us to keep abreast of scientific and technical advances, promote occupational safety and best food safety and hygiene practices.

Our exterior and interior cleaning and disinfection processes are carried out with approved disinfectants for professional use (registered in the Official Registry of Biocides) and in accordance with the guidelines of Standard UNE 171210: 2008. After each performance, we issue an official certificate that certifies the disinfection carried out and the safety of the products used.
