Plastic food contact materials: opportunity to provide feedback

Published by AGRINFO on

Summary

The European Commission has published a draft proposal that aims to increase quality control of plastic food contact materials. In particular, it aims to align existing rules on these materials (Regulation 10/2011) with legislation on recycled plastics (Regulation 2022/1616) and biocidal products (Regulation 528/2012). It introduces purity requirements for substances obtained from waste and natural materials, and adds quality control rules on good manufacturing practice.

There is an opportunity to provide feedback on the Commission’s proposal via the Have Your Say webpage until 15 April 2024.
