Intertek Conducts One-Day Training Course on Global Food Contact Regulations

March 14, 2019

Intertek, a leading Total Quality Assurance provider to industries worldwide, will be conducting a one-day training course on Food Contact Regulations taking place in Brussels, Belgium on March 20, 2019.  

Food contact regulatory requirements around the world are complex as various regions (US, EU, China, South America, etc.) require their own notifications for new food contact substances and have specific compliance specifications for food contact materials. This training course is ideal for companies who supply food contact materials to ensure that their products are in compliance with current regulations to remain in the market. This course will also provide attendees with information on the risk assessment process required to achieve compliance.

Intertek's Health, Environmental & Regulatory Services (HERS) experts, Sarah Peter, Manager Strategic Development, Food Contact EMEA, and Job Ridderbecks, Food Contact Technical Specialist, will share their knowledge and expertise as it relates to the following topics:

  • Compliance approach for assessing polymer material including plastic, silicones, coatings, rubber
  • Cross-comparison between EU, FDA, Mercosur, and China
  • EN1186 overall migration testing according to the test conditions specified in Commission Regulation (EU) No 10/2011 on plastic materials and articles intended to come into contact with food
  • EN13130 specific migration testing according to the test conditions specified in Commission Regulation (EU) No 10/2011 on plastic materials and articles intended to come into contact with food
  • Regulation (EU) 10/2011 and article 3 in Commission Regulation (EC) No 1935/2004 on materials and articles intended to come into contact with food
  • China GB 4806 & GB 31604 series of tests
