Dear Simon,

We are a plant that produces carton packs for milk and for juice (Gable Top). We are required to perform Migration Tests and Extractable Tests on our cartons.

Is there a certain standard which specify these tests' procedures, and what are the allowed tolerances in these tests according to the regulations of Europe and of the United States?

Hi Shimon,

The FDA guidance can be found on the following page:

Preparation of Food Contact Notifications and Food Additive Petitions for Food Contact Substances: Chemistry Recommendations

I did have a simple overview but have been unable to locate it, I'll keep looking...

Light migration overview attached to post below.

Hope this helps,
