Food contact material

Food contact material is all material that is used in articles, apparatus or packaging material with contact to food, i.e. dishes, coffee machines, bottles. It needs to be guaranteed that this material is not toxicologically relevant because of its composition. Moreover, food may not be changed in its odour or flavour by contact material (see Regulation (EC) No 1935/2004; available at [»])

We prepare compliance assessments according to the Recommendations of the (German) Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (BfR) for material with food contact; available at [»]

Moreover, we generate dossiers for registration of substances for use in (plastic) materials with food contact according to the specifications of the European Food Safety Agency EFSA (see for comparison Regulation (EU) No 10/2011; available at [»])
