Due to EU regulations, more and more of our customers are now expecting migration (overall migration not specific migration) test results from us. Our bags are made from virgin polymer, no printing. I understand the concept however I have some questions that go unanswered.
1. Does 'overall' migration testing cover the full range of simulants?
2. We make hundreds of different sizes and thicknesses of bags for different products, if customer A uses our bags for fish, customer B uses our bags for fruit, customer C uses our bags for ice, do I need a separate result for customer A, another for customer B and so on?
3. It is a very expensive exercise. How do I go about this intelligently?
4. What am I not asking?
I want the answer to be 1 bag + 1 test = all the customers are happy.
