Depends on country, I can't speak to the Philippines. However in USA, one standard that can be used is the paper stock and rinse standard in the pasteurized milk ordinance.

1. Paper stock shall meet the bacteriological standard of not more than two hundred fifty (250) colonies per gram as determined by the disintegration test. The paper stock supplier shall certify that their paper stock was manufactured in compliance with this Standard. This applies only to the paper stock prior to lamination.

 

2. Where a rinse test can be used, the residual microbial count shall not exceed fifty (50) per container, except that in containers less than 100 mL, the count shall not exceed ten (10), or when using the swab test, not over fifty (50) colonies per fifty (50) cm 2 (1 per square centimeter) of product-contact surface in three (3) out of four (4) samples taken at random on a given day. All single-service containers and closures shall be free of coliform organisms.

(packaging not my area but it is possible some of EC limits may have changed based on my limited memory of recent threads)


Kind Regards,
