Food contact materials: Expert webinars by TÜV Rheinland

04-10-21Greater China

Before food is consumed, it has often been in contact with many different materials and articles, for example with packaging, kitchenware and household goods, food electrical appliances and food and packaging processing lines. Those materials and articles need to be developed and manufactured in a responsible way so that they do not release hazardous substances into the final food. Newly developed sustainable materials are more and more used in food contact materials (FCM) with a limited understanding of their compliance status and safety behavior with regards to migration into the food.

The respective industry needs to comply with food contact legislation and is facing a wide range of challenges – both nationally and internationally. This concerns, for example, restaurants and retailers as well as food, transportation and food contact material industries together with raw material and product developers. Complex, constantly updating legislation must be observed, and implemented in product design rules and in migration and hygienic testing of the product requirements that must be met. Local authorities use more and more sophisticated analytical untargeted screening methods to measure compliance when monitoring products at borders and through market surveillance.
