White Paper Download: Food Contact Compliance and Non-Intentionally Added Substances (NIAS)

Learn more about the non-intentionally added substances (NIAS) risk assessment process for food contact materials

Determination of food contact compliance has mainly focussed on assessment of the migration of known substances used in the manufacture of food contact materials. However, this approach does not take into consideration the potential harm caused by the presence and migration of non-intentionally added substances (NIAS; see Figure 1 for definitions). The European Regulation 10/20112 on plastic materials and articles intended to come into contact with food defines that non-intentionally added substances could include substances such as impurities, contaminants, reaction and degradation products. In this whitepaper our expert, David Eaves takes you stepwise through the process for a successful risk assessment and testing to mitigate the potential risks due to NIAS.
