Gabriele Heller examines the legal aspects of printing on food contact materials (FCM) and cosmetic packaging.
Food contact materials must comply with the requirements of EC regulation 1935/2004. Groups of materials and articles listed in Annex I of regulation 1935/2004 must be manufactured in accordance with the requirements of good manufacturing practice laid down in EC regulation 2023/2006. For food packaging made of plastic materials, regulation 10/2011 has to be taken into account as well.
