European Food Contact Plastics Seminar 2019 – REGISTRATION IS OPEN!

On 11 - 12 April 2019, in Brussels, Polymer Comply Europe (PCE), on behalf of European Plastics Converters (EuPC), will hold its 6th edition of the European Food Contact Plastics Seminar. This year, the seminar will focus on Improving transparency throughout the supply chain

The first day of the seminar will be dedicated to the main regulatory issues impacting food contact plastics manufacturers and the entire supply chain. Experts from the industry and academia will focus on regulatory and scientific developments in the food contact-related dossiers of e.g. Titanium Dioxide, Endocrine Disrupters or Nanomaterials. Representatives of several brand owners will present case studies from their perspectives in the supply chain on how they ensure efficient transfer of information throughout the chain (such as Declaration of Compliance) and what processes they have in place to ensure compliance with the EU food contact regulations. Among others, we will hear the perspectives of Coca-Cola and Ferrero.

On the second day, we will welcome the representatives of the European Commission and the Food Contact Materials Team of DG Santé who will give us an update on the current Evaluation of the Framework Regulation No. 1935/2004. Furthermore, the opportunities for improvement of the regulations to streamline enforcement by national authorities will be discussed by the Food Safety Authority of a EU Member State. EuPC will present the preliminary results of the joint project of EuPC and Joint Research Centre (JRC) on the identification of Non-Intentionally Added Substances (NIAS). And we will also hear the perspective of companies involved in the recycling of food contact plastics.

The two-day event will bring together participants from the industry, research institutes, European and national authorities, food and drink companies and retailers. A networking cocktail will be held on the evening of 11 April.
