EU: JRC Guidance for polymers in multilayer films used in FCM
The Joint Research Centre (JRC) of the European Commission has published a guidance document with the title ‘Guidance for the identification of polymers in multilayer films used in food contact materials: User guide of selected practices to determine the nature of layers’.
This guidance describes how to characterize the composition of a multilayer plastic film for food packaging, with respect to the consecutive order of the layers and their identity. It provides necessary background information on the general composition of multilayer plastic packaging and it illustrates in detail the separation of layers for some examples (Website European Commission, 15 April 2016).
