Dear all, 

 

 My company produces plastic containers for food manufactures ans I would like to ask you the following : The Commission Regulation (EU) 2018/213 of 12 February 2018 on the use of bisphenol A in varnishes and coatings intended to come into contact with food and amending Regulation (EU) No 10/2011 as regards the use of that substance in plastic food contact materials has been published.

It sets a specific migration limit of 0.05 mg of BPA per kg of food from plastic materials, varnishes and coatings. 

 

My supplier send me a declaration that the material is free from Bisphenol-A 

 

Do I need to send my final product for Bisphenol-A free form test  or the declaration from my supplier is enough ?

 

Best Regards 

Themix

Hi smart,

 

Packaging not my area of expertise but IMO "free from" is quantitatively meaningless unless other interpretive data was attached.


Kind Regards,

Perhaps a little more context to what the limit they use to say they are free from BPA or they might use monomer that is not BPA, either way, LOG should always state to what standard they conform to and test results whenever applicable.
