On 20 and 21 April, EuPC held the Food Contact Plastics Seminar. The seminar updated key actors in the plastics food packaging industry on current legislation and gave training to those in charge of regulatory compliance.
Focus was on Assessing and Managing Risks: Recent and upcoming developments, with panellists providing valuable insight into the current and future regulatory framework.
On the first day, panellists examined risk assessment and management and the application dossiers of additives, as well as looked into the EFSA opinion on risk assessment of substances used in Food Contact Materials. The assessment of Non-Intentionally Added Substances (NIAS) and integrated approaches to food safety including insight of key converters and food industry were addressed as well. Overall, the event proved to be an excellent opportunity for industry stakeholders to connect, exchange and gain insights on assessing and managing risks where plastics in food packaging are concerned. EuPC looks forward to staging the next Food Contact in 2018!
