Prioritizing safety and promoting confidence with expert LFGB analysis

As research expands our knowledge of chemical substances and their effects on our lives, regulators and consumers alike react to this new information. We keep abreast of changes and provide you with LFGB analyses in line with current migration limits and substance lists.

Proving your compliance with LFGB standards not only opens markets and improves customer confidence. It is also a sign of your dedication to manufacturing products safe for humans and the environment. Our LFGB services enable you to promote confidence in your brand and prioritize safety.

LFGB food grade testing based on EC 76/769/EEC and EC 1935/2004

We base our analysis of articles and materials that come into contact with foodstuffs on two framework directives. EC No. 1935/2004 identifies basic documentary and testing requirements, and EC Directive 76/769/EEC outlines restrictions on the marketing and use of certain dangerous substances.

Our comprehensive chemical and migration-level testing addresses:

  • Positive lists of authorized substances
  • Special conditions for use of these substances
  • Basic rules for checking compliance
  • Overall migration limit of constituents into or onto foodstuffs
  • Specific migration limits of certain constituents into or onto foodstuffs

We offer tailor-made testing programs, extending the scope of food contact testing for all materials. We provide strong technical support for customers and advice on failed tests when possible. You can also register for our seminars and training courses or receive regular news updates on product regulations.
