The drive to reduce the environmental impact of plastic packaging is a growing global trend. However, the use of post-consumer recycled plastic (PCR) materials in food contact applications presents a challenge in terms of determining non-intentionally added substances (NIAS) in these materials which may present health and safety risks for consumers.

In this white paper, our expert Gabrielle Van Benthem-Van Duuren, Application Specialist Food Contact, describes the regulatory context and challenges associated with NIAS determination and illustrates the complexity of these analytical programs with a case study.

This capability is a key part of CircularAssure which is our programme of assurance, testing and certification services that can be applied across the recycled plastic value chain from waste collectors and recycling companies to polymer producers and brands, enabling each stakeholder to ensure quality, safety, and optimise the value of products within the plastics/polymer circular economy.
