Simon,

I work for a corrugated box plant. We are Catagory 'A' and have been since June 2002. What I want to ask is... If we were asked to produce a box that clearly is primary packaging, and the customer is aware that we are a secondary packaging plant, how would we stand legally if we went ahead and made the box?

P.S. Great website!

Hello John,

Regardless of the implications under the BRC/IOP Packaging Standard there is applicable legislation in the UK pertaining to Primary (or food contact) packaging. If your packaging materials do not meet this legislation you and/or your customer could be in serious trouble.

Below is a link to a document on the Food Standards Agency web site: Food contact materials and articles legislation: guidance notes.

Read the full guidance notes (pdf file 105kb)

If you have any further questions after you have read it feel free to ask.

Regards,
Simon
