EU Amends Regulation (EU) No 10/2011 on Food Contact Articles

March 25, 2014

The European Union (EU) has amended Regulation (EU) No 10/2011 on plastic materials and articles intended to come into contact with food.

Dating back to July 2012, the European Food Safety Authority issued favorable scientific evaluations for two additional substances, namely 2-phenyl-3,3-bis(4-hydroxyphe­nyl) phthalimidine (3) and 1,3-bis(isocyanatomethyl)ben­zene (4).

Those substances should now be added to the Union list of authorized substances as food contact material (FCM) substances.
