  • FEICA guidance regarding food contact of MOHs in adhesives.pdf

    Uploaded June 22, 2022

    Updated FEICA guidance for evaluating the food contact status of adhesives containing mineral oil hydrocarbons (MOHs).

    This guidance paper, published by the FEICA Paper & Packaging Working Group, aims at supporting adhesive producers and adhesive users in ensuring that the adhesive is safe in the intended application. It provides clarifications regarding assessing the risk of MOH migration from adhesives and, where testing is needed, performing the testing and evaluating the results. A decision tree is also included to help users evaluate adhesives for their intended application.

  • A Tailored Risk Assessment for Food Contact Materials.pdf

    Uploaded April 11, 2022

    FEICA co-signs 'Tailored Risk Assessment for Food Contact Materials' (FCM)

    Numerous associations propose an approach where substances undergo a “one substance - one assessment”, consisting of a first step “one substance- one hazard assessment” in which the hazard is defined by the intrinsic properties of the substance. This should be followed by a second step of a “FCM specific risk assessment and management” for food contact materials and articles, in which the risk resulting from potential oral exposure is assessed. We believe that EFSA is best positioned to provide such specific FCM assessment due to their extensive experience in food safety-related matters, and in the assessment of substances in dietary exposure.

  • FEICA recommendation on PAAs in polyurethane adhesives intended to be used in food packaging.pdf

    Uploaded March 30, 2022

    FEICA recommendation to adhesive suppliers and users on the assessment of PAAs in polyurethane adhesives intended to be used in food packaging

    Polyurethane adhesives do not contain Primary Aromatic Amines (PAAs). However, in specific circumstances and when the adhesive is not fully cured, they can be formed by a reaction.  Consequently, the adhesive user has to be made aware of the potential formation of PAAs and their responsibility to ensure full curing of the adhesive layer.

    FEICA updated its recommendation to adhesive suppliers and users on the assessment of PAAs in polyurethane adhesives intended to be used in food packaging. The recommendation includes advice to the downstream user as regards the limits to be respected for PAAs.

    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.
