Two days dedicated to the latest updates in food contact regulations

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), in addition to 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.

Food contact regulations continue to be complex and fast-moving. This two-day conference will bring together a panel of speakers from around the world, sharing the latest developments in European legislation. The conference offers guidance from experts, including regulators, scientists and industry representatives through presentations, roundtable discussions and Q&As.
