Dossier preparation for the safety assessment of substances to be used in food contact plastic materials

FoBiG is pleased to announce the start of our collaboration with the members of the Hydrocarbon Solvents Producers Association (HSPA). We are looking forward to support HSPA in the dossier preparation for certain hydrocarbon solvents used in printing inks (or other mixtures) in food contact materials (FCM). Currently there is no respective European legislation. The application is intended for submission to the German Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (BfR) for inclusion of respective substances in a recommendation list (which is not legally binding).

For further information on FCM please contact Karin Heine.
