Food Contact Materials: Public Consultation

1 April 2019


On 11 February 2019, as part of the evaluation of the EU food contact materials (FCM) legislation, the European Commission opened a public consultation to assess the current EU legislative framework for FCM as it pertains to the Framework Regulation 1935/2004.


This consultation addresses whether the “tools of the FCM legislation are still relevant and coherent” and whether the potential risks originating from the intended uses of food contact materials require strengthening of the current scope and compliance toolbox of the FCM legislation. The consultation is open until 6 May 2019. Cerame-Unie is currently preparing a reply.
