Support for the European Cold Chain Traceability Standard EN12830

Monnit ALTA® Wireless Standard Enterprise and Industrial Temperature Sensors are certified for the European EN12830 cold chain traceability standard.

The EN12830 certification supports monitoring and data-logging temperatures from -40°C to 85°C during transporting, storing, and distributing temperature-sensitive goods. Transporters and logistics managers, primarily in the European food and pharmaceutical industries, can use our ALTA Standard Temperature Sensors to comply with EN12830 regulations.

Monitor, Control, and Report Product Temperatures

The European 2018 EN12830 standard specifies technical and functional characteristics that our ALTA Standard Temperature Sensors with three-foot leads must meet to monitor and data log the condition of goods during transportation, storage, and distribution.

According to the EN12830 certificate, these sensors primarily comply with the following:

  • Class 0.5 accuracy of +/- 0.5°C from -40°C to 50°C
  • Class 1.0 accuracy of +/- 1°C from 50.1°C to 85°C
  • Data-logging integrity, data traceability, and software data security specifications
  • Autonomous operation and independent power supply
  • Sensor housing durability and manufacturing requirements

The EN12830 certification is in addition to our National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) certification and Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) and Title 21 Code of Federal Regulations Part 11B compliance.

Maintain Temperatures in Food and Pharmaceutical Cold Chains

To ensure quality and prove that you keep food and pharma products at adequate and safe temperatures in Europe and that you record these temperatures for continuous control purposes, you must meet the EN12830 standard.

This European regulation requires compliant sensors/recorders or data loggers. Our data-logging ALTA Temperature Sensors, ALTA and ALTA XL® IoT Gateways, and iMonnit™ cloud-based software are used by businesses worldwide to accurately record, verify, and validate temperature wherever their perishable goods go.

Every ALTA Wireless Standard Enterprise and Industrial Temperature Sensor Monnit sells in the UK will have an EN12830 certificate and a NIST accuracy statement.

We also recommend that customers regularly adhere to the EN13486 standard that outlines how to use our EN12830-certified sensors/recorders and how often they need their accuracy periodically verified by an accredited body. In France, for example, the verification must be done by a COFRAC (Le Comité Français d'Accréditation) accredited body.

To comply with EN12830, please order Monnit NIST-certified Temperature Sensors from Monnit. The part numbers are MNS2-8-W1-TS-ST-L03-NC, MNS2-8-W2-TS-ST-L03-NC, and MNS2-8-IN-TS-ST-L03-NC. 

Monnit EN12830 certification is a recorder quality-level verification.
