    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.

  • Joint statement on Sector use maps.pdf

    Uploaded October 10, 2016

    A joint statement titled "Improving the safe use of chemicals in Europe through excellence in supply chain communication" was signed on 6 October 2016 by DUCC, ECHA and CEFIC.

    Accurate and clear information on the conditions of safe use of chemicals generated and communicated along the supply chain is essential in ensuring the successful implementation of the European Union’s REACH Regulation. To that end, DUCC, ECHA and CEFIC acknowledge the crucial role that sector use maps play in achieving excellence in supply chain communication.

    Please see the ECHA and CEFIC communications for more info.

    FEICA (as part of DUCC) will continue promoting the tools and raising awareness among downstream industry organisations to produce sector use maps to support registrants in generating meaningful exposure scenarios.

    European Coatings Journal (ECJ), issue 6/2016: Mapping out REACH

    REACH requires the industry to take responsibility for the safe use of the chemicals they place on the market, and companies therefore have to manage the risks of their products. An essential part of this responsibility is the effective safe use communication throughout the supply chain. Use maps can play a key role in this process.

    In this article, published by ECJDivina Gómez, Regulatory Affairs Manager at FEICA, explains how FEICA has developed use maps to provide registrants with information on uses and conditions of use of adhesive and sealant products in a harmonised and structured way.
