Assuming it may contact food, it should be "Food Grade".

Kind Regards,

We are cardboard packaging manufacturers. We print carton board and make contact food packaging.

To our customer we supply a declaration of food safety complacence  compliance. This is a requirement of the BRC (v5)  in accordance with clause 3.4.3  

It states

  • compliance with legal requirements e.g.  
  • food contact, . -  reg 1935/2004
  • GMP - reg 2023/2006.
  • Limitations of the product  -  for hot/ cold/ fatty/ dry etc foods
  • Recycled content (post consumer, if any)
  • nature of the material (plastic ? paper? carton board?)


We glean this information from our suppliers. Each supplier (3 components -board, glue, inks) has given us their food safety information and test results. We then compile our declaration on their information pointing out that we have not carried out testing on our product but this information on from the components.

Perhaps you can get one from your supplier. This should be part of the risk assessment with regards to  MIGRATION You also need to think about FOREIGN BODY. ID it glued, metal staples?. Is there going to be off cuts ? dust? 

You question is a bit vague so I'm not sure which perspective you are coming from, as a supplier, user, manufacturer?
