We support by reducing the complexity of NIAS Safety Validation
Take advantage of our expert NIAS (non-intentionally added substances) Testing and Risk Assessment Services
Confirming the safety of any non-intentionally added substances (NIAS) of your products is a mandatory and important task in Europe and China – and has an indirect impact in other countries. Failure to comply with regulations will have devastating effects on your brand. Even if a raw material is approved for food contact, the initial manufacturing process and subsequent modifications can lead to degradation as well as the addition of impurities or contamination in the final product. Today, analytical techniques are able to measure even the smallest level of chemical migration from your FCM goods into food. With products potentially manufactured using different raw materials coming from various suppliers, keeping track and validating all the variables – and then overseeing testing – is a major responsibility and an arduous undertaking. Which is made more difficult by suppliers who are not eager to share insights into the composition of their materials.

Our NIAS Specialists support you every step of the way
The complexity of proving NIAS compliance is vast. It is not enough to know how to correctly screen a product or packaging, but also to interpret the results and understand where a potential migratable substance is coming from. This is where our scientific expertise and industrial knowledge can do the difference. In addition, as a neutral 3rd party, suppliers of raw materials are more disposed to disclosing their composition. Plus, in the event of NIAS validation of your full product portfolio, we support you with clustering with the selection of a balanced risk profile. This allows for an optimized cost benefit of the NIAS testing and in the reuse of the results for new product development or SKU manufacturing definition.
