Intertek, a leading Total Quality Assurance provider to industries worldwide, will present during the Smithers virtual Chemical Recycling Summit 2022, which takes place from November 16 to 17 (Beijing/Singapore time).

This year's event will focus on global chemical recycling trends, success stories, regulation development, different recycling technologies, and more. Attendees will learn about new developments in the chemical recycling industry, and will be able to share their knowledge and exchange ideas with key stakeholders across the supply chain.

Intertek Assuris France expert Anne-Sophie Moriceau, Product Safety Manager – Materials / Toxicologist, PharmD, will present "Recycled Plastics for Food Contact Use: New Regulation in Europe" on Day 2 (November 17th at 11:10 a.m. UTC/GMT). The European Regulation (EU) 2022/1616 on recycled plastic materials and articles intended to come into contact with foods came into force on 10 October 2022, and repealed Regulation 282/2008/EC. During her presentation, Anne-Sophie will compare the previous and new regulations to discuss the main requirement changes and highlight supply chain roles and responsibilities.
