Food Packaging Material Compliance Simplified for EU and US
Thomas J. Dunn, Managing Director, Flexpacknology llc
Friday, September 18, 2015 (03:00 PM - 04:00 PM UK Time). This is a 10 a.m. Eastern Start.
The evolution of European Union food packaging material legislation has been the source of much confusion in the United States. While procedural details differ, the substance of legal requirements in the two large consumer markets has much in common. This webinar summarizes similarities and differences between the two systems and suggests how compliance for one can document fulfillment of the other.
