US regulatory requirements for recycled food contact materials

Plastic packaging plays a central role in the food supply chain. It is a critical component of the preservation of food during storage, handling, and transport to ensure food quality and minimise food waste. Increasingly, packaging practices and the nature of supply chains are under scrutiny due to growing concerns over waste and the use of unnecessary fossil fuel and other resources.

As the shift towards a circular economy continues, it is important to understand the compliance obligations recycled plastics must meet to ensure their safe use when they come into contact with food.

This webinar will discuss current US regulatory requirements for such materials.

After completing this webinar, you will be able to:

  • identify US Federal regulations that apply to recycled food contact materials (FCMs); and
  • apply key regulatory considerations into the manufacturing and marketing of recycled plastic materials to be used as FCMs.
