Non-intentionally added substances (NIAS) represent a major issue for the food packaging industry. NIAS are chemical compounds that are present in a plastic food contact material (FCM) but have not been added for a technical purpose during production. Potential health risks associated with NIAS should be assessed as a requirement of the European Food Contact Regulation 10/2011 however this can be a challenging process.

This On Demand Webinar, from our expert David Eaves, Regulatory Consultant, covers key elements of the regulations and the latest thought leadership on suitable approaches to identification and quantification of NIAS, applying the correct procedures to identify unknown substances and what steps should be covered in a toxicology risk assessment in order to assess potential health risk associated with the final material or article in accordance with internationally recognised scientific principles. Recorded during our live broadcast on March 5, 2019.
