At their production and use, adhesives play an important role. Already during the development of products for such applications, the adhesives industry therefore takes into account not only the technical requirements also include food law aspects. At Intercol we have a guideline to explain the complex food law issues in this context using the example of food packaging.
According to article 3 of the regulation (EG) No. 1935/2004
the final seller of manufacturer of foodstuff is not the only one responsible for the quality of food packaging, allthough the final producer is the only party that can check all circumstances. Ideally there have to be done an assessment for each type of packaging on:
- Possible mass transfers into food (migrations).
- Packaging safety
The requirements for food packaging are now so varied and extensive that for the design and manufacture of which the experts at all stages of production work together. To make this more easy, Intercol has introduced a new serie of adhesives, know as SML12 range.
