Evaluation of Food Contact Materials

Food contact materials (FCMs) are all materials that come into contact with food including packaging as well as every-day items such as kitchen and tableware and those used in professional food manufacturing, preparation, storage and distribution. Regulation (EC) No 1935/2004 (the FCM Regulation) provides that these materials shall not transfer their components into food in quantities that could endanger human health or change the composition, or organoleptic properties of the food. The purpose of this evaluation is to assess whether the current EU legislative framework for FCMs is fit for purpose and delivers as expected.
