Nordic co-operation issues checklist for printing inks used in food contact materials
The international trade coalition Nordic co-operation has issued a checklist for printing inks used in food contact materials (FCM).
Safe use of FCM is a complicated area, in general, and specifically the use of printing inks and the critical points in the printing process. One of the goals for this check list is to contribute to the development of more uniform control and requirements for in-house control.
Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden and the autonomous territories of the Faroe Islands, Greenland and Åland work together in the official Nordic co-operation (Website Nordic co-operation, 2 May 2012).
