Get to the heart of the regulatory issues within food contact

Bringing together global experts and stakeholders, this two-day conference will provide a dynamic meeting place for the food contact materials (FCMs) regulatory community in North America.

New federal and state legislation, together with manufacturer-led sustainability mandates, are reshaping the food contact materials landscape and presenting greater complexity than ever before.

Now in its sixth year, this conference enables regulatory professionals to navigate this uncertainty, providing the latest updates to legislation taking place in North America and beyond. Experts from across the supply chain will offer knowledge and guidance through a series of informative presentations, panel discussions, and interactive Q&As.

Key topics at Food Contact Regulations USA 2023 include:

  • federal-level regulations, including updates from the US FDA and Health Canada;
  • a review of State activity on restrictions to PFAS and other chemicals of concern for food packaging;
  • food contact regulations and the impact of the changing sustainability landscape across the supply chain;
  • overcoming the challenge of developing food contact compliant materials using recycled content;
  • substance-specific developments including adhesives, coatings and inks; and
  • global food contact updates and their potential influence on regulations in the USA.
