September 27, 2018

Intertek, a leading Total Quality Assurance provider to industries worldwide, will be hosting a one-day ChemicalWatch Food Contact Regulations Training Course taking place in Brussels, Belgium on November 20, 2018.

Food contact regulatory requirements around the world are complex and challenging to navigate. Often, different regions (US, EU, China, South America, etc.) have unique notification requirements for new food contact substances, in addition to varied compliance specifications for food contact materials.

  • Compliance approach for assessing polymer material including plastic, silicones, coatings, rubber
