The latest updates in food contact regulations in the US

Food contact materials (FCM) are materials or articles that come into contact with food (and beverages), such as packaging, containers, machinery (used to process foodstuffs), as well as kitchenware and tableware. Food contact materials have the potential to affect human health and the environment, so ensuring compliance with food contact regulations is of the utmost importance to those manufacturing, producing or even selling food contact materials.

FCM regulations continue to be complex and fast-moving, with increasing consumer demand for information and developing technologies. This event from Chemical Watch, now in its third year, brings together a team of outstanding speakers from North and South America to offer the latest developments in federal and state level-legislation along with global FCM regulations.

Over two days, the annual Food Contact Regulations USA conference offers guidance on the latest developments in food contact materials from experts (including regulators, specialist consultants, and industry) through a series of informative presentations, panel discussions, and interactive Q&As.
