Commission Regulation (EU) 2019/37 amending and correcting Regulation (EU) No 10/2011 on plastic materials and articles intended to come into contact with food
Added on: 01/02/2019
Annex I to Commission Regulation (EU) No 10/2011 establishes a Union list of authorised substances which may be used in the manufacture of plastic materials and articles intended to come into contact with food.
Annex III to that Regulation assigns food simulants to be used for tests to demonstrate compliance of plastic materials.
The European Food Safety Authority (‘the Authority’) has published further scientific opinions on particular substances that may be used in food contact materials (‘FCM’) as well as on the permitted use of already authorised substances. In addition, certain textual errors and ambiguities were identified.
Therefore, Annexes I and III to Regulation (EU) No 10/2011 are amended in accordance with the Annex to this Regulation.
