What's it about

"Food Contact Materials (FCMs) are materials or products which are intended having contact with food. Some examples are food packaging, food containers, tableware, cookware, kitchen utensils, food processors, coffee makers etc. Food contact materials can be made from various type of materials such as plastic, ceramics, glass, wood, metals etc.

Basically FCM legislation is about inertness. This means that during contact with the food no matter (molecules) from the FCM may migrate to the food.

For some specific materials such as plastic and ceramics there is certain European harmonisation on legislative requirements, however for the majority of specific materials there is no specific European legislation and specific national legislation applies. This makes Food Contact Legislation quite complex.

The safety of Food Contact Materials must be tested by the business operators placing them on the European and national markets.
