Safety assessment of the substance  for use in food contact materials published by EFSA

Aug 29, 2021

The EFSA Panel on Food Contact Materials, Enzymes and Processing Aids (CEP Panel) assessed the safety of the substance ‘phosphorous acid, triphenyl ester, polymer with alpha‐hydro‐omega‐hydroxypoly[oxy(methyl‐1,2‐ethanediyl)], C10–16 alkyl esters’. Overall, the CEP Panel concluded that the substance phosphorous acid, triphenyl esters, polymer with alpha‐hydro‐omega‐hydroxypoly[oxy(methyl‐1,2‐ethanediyl)], C10–16 alkyl esters, does not raise a safety concern for the consumer if it is used as an additive at up to 0.025% w/w in ABS materials and articles for single and repeated use in contact with aqueous, acidic, alcoholic and oil‐in‐water emulsion foods, for long‐term storage at room temperature and below, and if its migration does not exceed 0.05 mg/kg food.
