SGS presents an expert webinar on SGS’s Food Product Certification Mark and testing and certification for food contact materials and products.
Food contact materials (FCM) are subject to rigorous testing. From cling film to containers, it is essential that items are safe, as well as fit for purpose, for the consumer. Testing and certification of FCM products is beneficial for businesses, not just to ensure the quality and safety of the items, but also to provide market distinction.
In this live webinar, SGS expert Dr. Udo Krischke explains the benefits of production certification and how SGS’s Food Product Certification Mark can make all the difference to your business by helping you to achieve speedy market access as well as a competitive head start for your product. He will look at the scope of products that are eligible, take you through the certification process and answer your questions.
Covering both mandatory and safety requirements, as well as voluntary performance parameters, the SGS Food Contact Product Certification Mark gives your products transparency and accountability – delivering trust and market advantage.
