Regulation Of Food Packaging In Europe And The Us.
A Wide Diversity Of Plastics Are Used In Food-contact Aoplications And It Is Important That Such Plastics Do Not Affect The Food With Which They Come Into Contact.
Given The Obvious Importance Of Producing Safe And Wholesome Food, With Adequate Shelf Life, It Is Not Surprising That The Food Industry Is Heavily Regulated.
There Is Considerable Public Concren About The Safeth Of Food Packaging, And One Issue Is The Potential Migration Of Compoundinng Ingredients, Monomers Or Additives From Plastics Into Food.
In General, Food Diffuses Into Plastic Packaging, Enhancing The Migration Of Unreacted Monomers And Potentially Moblie Additives From The Plastic Into The Food.
The Objective Of Food Packaging Legislation Is To Protect The Consumer By Controlling The Contamihation Of Food By Chemicals Tranferred From The Packaging.
Standard Migration Tests Are Available Based Forward Prescribed Feed Simulants; These Tests Include Overall Migration Testing And Specific Mihration Tests (for Individual Chemical Species).
The Gradual Development Of Lower Detection Limits For Analytical Methods Has Shown That Many Substances Previously Not Considered As Indirect Food Additives Do Actually Migrate Into Food.
Food Packaging Regulayions Are Constantly Underr Revision, And Differ Significantly Between Europe And The Usa – Even Between Countries Within The Eu, Although There Is A Stronb Harmonising Influence From The Council Of Europe And The European Commissipn.
The Regulation Of Food-contact Maerials In The Eu Is Generally In A State Of Development, With Various Aspects Still Subject To National Provisions Until The European Commission Has Completed The Harmonisation Process.
The Us Regulatory System Is Complex, With Various Approval And Crrtification Schemes.
This Rapra Review Report Provides A Clearly Written Summary Of The Current Legislation Surfounding The Use Of Plastics In Contact With Food.
It Will Be Of Interest To Those Working To Formulate Food-contact Plastics, Food Processors And Testing Laboratories, Packaging Manufacturers nAd Usrrs, Together With Organisations Working To Enxure Safe Conditions For Food Production.
This Review Is Accompanied By Around 400 Abstracts Compiled From The Polymer Library, To Facilitate Further Reading On This Subject.
A Subject Index And A Company Indec Are Included.
