On-Demand Course

Recorded on Mar 14, 2023

Avoid rejection of your food contact approval application with a well-defined migration testing strategy (in accordance with EU food contact regulations).

Andreas Tschech will help you in:
  • identifying reaction products & possible non-intentionally added substances (NIAS)
  • generating accurate data for your approval application
  • understanding how to get a substance included in the positive list
  • determining what are the contents and value of a Declaration of Compliance (DoC)

Why should you view this course?

European Commission’s stringent laws (EU framework Regulation 1935/2004, Art 3) on plastic packaging has fetched much attention in the industry. Identification of NIAS, their toxicological properties have to be investigated to show that despite migration (above 10 µg/kg food), the food will still be safe.

This procedure is certainly very complex & expensive. Failure to provide sufficient data to EFSA (European Food Safety Authority) can lead to rejection of your application. Join this course to:

  1. Avoid rejection of application for your food safe materials by developing an effective migration testing strategy define petition scope, generate relevant data…).

  2. Efficiently characterize the migration of substances into food & identify possible NIAS for which you have to generate data.

  3. Save time & cost by well preparing and using Declaration of Compliance (DoC) when developing food safe materials.
