Determination of food contact compliance has mainly focussed on assessment of the migration of known substances used in the manufacture of FCMs. However, this approach does not take into consideration the potential harm caused by the presence and migration of non-intentionally added substances (NIAS). The European Regulation 10/20112 on plastic materials and articles intended to come into contact with food defines NIAS as impurities, reaction products, reaction intermediates and decomposition products.

In this whitepaper, our experts, take you stepwise through the testing and risk assessment process to mitigate potential risks due to NIAS.
