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

Determination of food contact compliance has mainly focused 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. 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, David Eaves, Intertek Regulatory Consultant and Food Contact Expert, takes you stepwise through the risk assessment and testing process to mitigate potential risks due to NIAS.
