Printed FCM•Compliance•NIAS-Screenings•Test Plans

• Eurofins Consumer Product Testing (CPT) offers you migration analyses and content determinations for Primary Aromatic Amines (PAAs, 23 CMR-PAAs plus 21 additional PAAs as individual substances) and many more substances from pigments, printing inks and printed food packagings. With this, you can ensure that you fulfill the requirements according to the Council of Europe (CoE) Resolution AP (89)1, the EuPIA-Guidline and the BfR-Recommendation IX.
In addition, in printed articles we analyse printing ink components such as photoinitiators and acylate-monomers, which are especially used in UV-offset- and flexoprinting and have repeatedly led to negative headlines in the past.

• Eurofins CPT supports importers, manufacturers and converters of food packaging materials and their raw materials but also food fillers in making sure all applicable European legal requirements are met. We offer consultancy for all questions around the food contact compliance for your products and help you with the generation of a Declaration of Compliance with all required analyses.

• According to Article 19 of the European Plastics-Regulation (EU) No 10/2011 all potential health risks by food contact materials needs to be eliminated. This refers to intentionally added SML-substances (as formulation ingredients) as well as the Non-Intentionally Added Substances (NIAS) as degradation products or impurities – what counts is what migrates to the food. For this, Eurofins Consumer Product Testing offers you the so-called NIAS-screenings acc. EN 13130 and EN 14338 and supports you in addition with scientific risk assessments in order to prove compliance of your product with Article 3 of the European Framework-Regulation (EG) No 1935/2004.

•Furthermore, we offer you the generation of individual test plans including obtaining the food contact related datasheets from your raw material suppliers. Utilizing a systematic approach, especially under consideration of calculations and scientific reasoning, the testing need can be reduced by qualifying raw materials instead of testing each finished article. For this, we employ all available instruments for compliance work such as risk-assessments, worst-case-calculations and formulation-clustering. Of course, we also offer you the necessary analyses – everything from one hand.
