Beyond Food Contact Materials Regulations

Rigorous safety standards are in place for food contact materials, and complying with mandatory regulations can be complex, with variations across different markets. A thorough knowledge of market requirements makes it easier for businesses to meet safety and quality requirements.

This complimentary webinar looks at the rules for food contact materials (FCM) and articles destined for EU and US markets specifically. Harmful chemicals such as bisphenol A (BPA) and bisphenols may be found in the equipment used in food processing, in packaging or in the items we use to store, cook and eat our food.

With a proposed EU ban on bisphenol A (BPA) and bisphenols on the FCM industry, the webinar will explore general and specific measures for the EU, with a key focus on plastics. The US market will also be examined, including Federal Drug Administration and state requirements; encompassing chemical disclosure programs for children’s products and the use of BPA and per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) in FCM and articles.
