    FEICA guidance related to the FC status of adhesives and mineral oil hydrocarbons

    In this guidance document, FEICA aims to provide clarification on how to risk assess mineral oil hydrocarbons in adhesives and, in case testing is needed, how to perform the test and evaluate the results. A decision tree is also included to allow customers to evaluate an adhesive for its intended application. 


    This guidance aims to support adhesives producers and their downstream users in making sure that the adhesive in its intended application complies with article 3 of the Framework Regulation 1935/2004.

    FEICA in the news - FOOD CONTACT MATERIALS (ECJ)

    European Coatings Journal (ECJ), issue 1/2017: Adhesives as a Food Contact Material


    Food Contact Materials (FCMs) are widely used in packaging for everyday foods and beverages. Adhesives typically make up less than 5% of the food packaging and, for most adhesive applications, direct food contact is not intended. They are however used in almost all food packaging in order to bond the different materials used. 

    In this article, published by ECJ, Jana Cohrs, Regulary Affairs Manager at FEICA, explains that the adhesives industry is working hard to ensure that its products are safe and that FEICA, the Association of the European Adhesive & Sealant Industry, has now published several guidance papers to help not only its own members but also the other actors of the food contact material supply chain to ensure that the final packaging is safe.
