    Guidance for a food contact status declaration for adhesives

    This guidance is primarily for the benefit of FEICA members who are manufacturing adhesives for the food packaging and food service sector. In addition, the guidance is of interest both to users of food contact adhesives, such as packaging producers and their downstream users, and to other stakeholders involved in regulatory matters regarding food contact. Much of the guidance’s usefulness lies in its review of various legal texts related to adhesives, and food contact in the interest of providing pertinent information to all parties along the supply chain. There is also an extensive treatment of requirements placed on adhesive producers.

    FEICA Position Paper on the Mixture Assessment Factor (MAF)

    Under the Chemical Strategy for Sustainability, the European Commission plans to put a system in place that covers the combination effects of unintentional chemical mixtures. Because of the complexity linked to regulating an almost infinite number of possible combinations of chemicals, the concept of a Mixture Assessment Factor (MAF) was launched. This position paper discusses FEICA’s view that the introduction of a MAF should be risk-proportionate, workable and effective.

    FEICA Position Paper on the Registration of Polymers – the Exemption of Polyesters

    FEICA published a paper supporting the polyesters exemption in the context of the registration of polymers. When defining polymers subject to registration, polymers without relevant toxicological or ecotoxicological properties will be considered as polymers of low concern (PLC) and exempt from registration obligations. The PLC concept would in principle apply to polyester polymers manufactured from predefined monomers under the so-called ’Polyester Exemption‘. The Polyester Exemption already exists in other jurisdictions such as the United States, Canada and Australia.

    Defining a system for the notification of polymers (DUTCH, in cooperation with VLK and DETIC)

    This is the Dutch translation of the original English leaflet which can be consulted here.

    The European Commission is working to extend registration requirements for polymers, currently exempted from registration under EU REACH. The Commission is considering requesting industry to notify of certain polymers’ information.

    This FEICA leaflet explains why the notification of polymers should be limited to a concise dataset and analytical or test data should not be required at the notification stage.
