Paper and board is widely used as food contact material, but to date it is not regulated by harmonized EU specific measures. In the absence of specific EU measures, the EU countries may maintain or adopt their own national provisions on FCMs. National legislation is in place in the majority of EU Member States, setting out individual rules on different materials and substances. These may differ from one Member State to another.
Let’s talk with our experts about general EU requirements and the most popular national pieces of legislation. To understand similarities and differences can lead to a more effective and resource-efficient management of your products’ compliance.
Sustainability plays a key role in ensuring consumer confidence and, hence, sales into growing markets.
