EFSA 27/11/20 Risk Assessment of Food Contact Materials. EFSA 18/07/17 Safety assessment of the substance dimethyl carbonate for use in food contact materials. Abstract This scientific opinion of the EFSA Panel on Food Contact Materials, Enzymes, Flavourings and Processing Aids (CEF Panel) deals with the safety assessment of dimethyl carbonate used as monomer for making a polycarbonate prepolymer with 1,6-hexanediol and then reacted with 4,4′-methylenediphenyldiisocyanate (MDI) and diols, such as polypropylene glycol and 1,4-butanediol, to form a thermoplastic polyurethane containing 29% of the polycarbonate prepolymer.

EFSA 18/07/17 Safety assessment of the substance dimethyl carbonate for use in food contact materials

This polymer is intended for repeated use articles with short-term contact (≤ 30 min) at room temperature for types of food, simulated by 10% ethanol and 3% acetic acid. In the third migration test performed at 40°C during 30 min, overall migration was below 2 mg/dm2. Complete migration of the residual dimethyl carbonate would have amounted to less than 1.5 μg/kg food. 1 Introduction 1.1 Background and Terms of Reference as provided by the requestor 2 Data and methodologies 2.1 Data Data submitted and used for the evaluation are: EFSA Dossier: Matériaux en contact avec les aliments. Les matériaux en contact avec les aliments recouvrent tous les matériaux et articles destinés à entrer en contact avec des denrées alimentaires, par exemple les emballages et les récipients, le matériel de cuisine, les couverts et la vaisselle.

EFSA Dossier: Matériaux en contact avec les aliments

Ceux-ci peuvent être fabriqués à partir de matériaux divers, notamment du plastique, du caoutchouc, du papier ou encore du métal. Les matériaux en contact avec les aliments incluent également les matériaux utilisés dans les équipements utilisés pour le traitement ou la préparation d’aliments, par exemple les percolateurs, les machines de production alimentaire mais aussi les conteneurs utilisés pour le transport. En outre, la législation de l’Union européenne (UE) sur les matériaux en contact avec les aliments s’applique également aux matériaux en contact avec l’eau destinée à la consommation humaine, par exemple les bouteilles, à l’exception des équipements fixes d’alimentation en eau, publics ou privés.

According to Commission Regulation (EC) No 282/2008 of 27 March 2008 on recycled plastic materials intended to come into contact with foods and amending Regulation (EC) No 2023/2006, the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) is requested to evaluate recycling processes for plastic waste.

In this context, the Panel on Food Contact Materials, Enzymes, Flavourings and Processing Aids (CEF Panel) evaluated the process ‘PET-M’. The Ministerie van Volksgezondheid Welzijn en Sport, the Netherlands, requested the evaluation of the recycling process PET-M, submitted on behalf of the company Plastic Technologies & Products s.r.o., Czech Republic. This process has been allocated European Union register number RECYC062. The process PET-M is deemed to recycle polyethylene terephthalate (PET) containers, mainly bottles, collected through post-consumer collection systems. The process comprises four steps.

EFSA 23/01/15 Bridging the knowledge gap on non-plastic food contact materials. Dossier 23 janvier 2015 Did you know that plastics and some ceramics used in food contact materials are regulated at European level and evaluated by EFSA for safety but a wide range of other materials – coatings, paper and board, adhesives, printing inks and rubber – are not?

EFSA 23/01/15 Bridging the knowledge gap on non-plastic food contact materials

Small traces of these materials used in packaging, containers, cutlery and other articles can enter food and may pose a potential health risk to consumers. However, there is a lack of detailed science information about many of the substances found in these materials that makes this area of food safety particularly challenging. Some Member States do safety evaluations of non-plastic materials and have established national “positive lists” of authorised substances. Recently, EFSA set up an expert network drawn from national authorities, universities and research centres as well as European Commission services and the Council of Europe, to pool expertise, knowledge and information in this area.
