September 10, 2019

Intertek, a leading Total Quality Assurance provider to industries worldwide, will be conducting a one-day food contact regulations training course (hosted by Chemical Watch) on November 5, 2019 in Brussels, Belgium.

  • Compliance approach for assessing polymer materials 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 in contact with food)
