How to Determine the Safety of a Food Contact Adhesive
One important premise of food contact legislation is preventing food contact materials from endangering human health. It is up to the manufacturer of the food contact material to check whether their material releases certain chemicals and to assess whether or not these are likely to impact human health. However, there is no special regulation explicitly covering food contact adhesives. Dr. Joerg Feesche provides a summary, as well as information and insights into relevant regulations and risk assessment.
