EC Begins Public Consultation on Evaluation of FCMs – Update from Bergeson & Campbell, P.C.



The European Commission (EC) began a public consultation on February 11, 2019, on the evaluation of food contact materials (FCM).  The purpose of the evaluation is to assess whether the current European Union (EU) legislative framework for FCMs is fit for purpose and delivers as expected. The evaluation covers the functioning of Regulation (EC) No 1935/2004 (Regulation) in its entirety and the rules and tools provided for by the legislation, such as specific implementing measures.  It also examines the situation concerning materials for which there are no EU measures and which are subject to permitted national measures.  Comments are due May 6, 2019.
