The whitepaper on 'Assuring the Safety of Food Contact Materials' throws light on the safety of the food packaging materials and other articles foreseen to come into contact with foods. The safety of food contact materials must be evaluated as chemicals can migrate from the materials into food. The paper also mentions the framework regulation imposed by the European government on Food Contact Materials (FCM) and their practical implementation. In addition to the framework regulation EC 1935/2004, there are harmonized European and non-harmonized national regulations for FCM, all of them aiming at ensuring the health and safety of consumers.

The paper should be of interest to packaging technologists, R & D scientists and regulatory experts in the food and beverage industry.
