16.45-17.00: Conclusion & Closing

In the past 5 years, the Packaging Materials Task Force has been building a set of tools to demonstrate the safety of food contact materials and articles (FCMAs) regarding non-intentionally added substances (NIAS). The task force has already published two documents on those substances and bioassays for assessing their toxicology. A third document is expected early 2022 and will provide best practices for analytical approaches in identifying and quantifying NIAS.

The Task Force organised a workshop to discuss the potential need for guidance for a harmonised approach to perform risk assessment and risk management of migrants from all FCMs.

During the workshop, invited stakeholders have been invited to share their perspective on:

  • Availability and applicability of guidance for intentionally added substances (IAS);
  • Availability and applicability of guidance for NIAS;
  • What is the need for non-plastics FCMs?
  • What is foreseen in terms of risk management of migrants from FCMs in Europe in line with the Farm-to-Fork strategy?
  • What are the hurdles and research need to reach a harmonised approach?

The input has been fed into a discussion to determine if there was a need for initiatives to provide harmonized guidelines for safety assessment and risk management of potential migrants from FCMAs.
