The Food Standards Agency (FSA) and Standards Scotland (FSS) are seeking evidence in relation to the safety and stability of plastic food contact materials and articles containing bamboo or other plant-based material as additives. Such materials are often described as ‘plastic composites’, ‘bamboo composites’ or similar.
The call for evidence seeks any data or information that helps to inform the long-term safety of plastic composites containing bamboo and similar plant-based materials. This evidence will also inform the assessment criteria for future regulated product applications concerning botanicals in plastic food contact materials being placed on the Great Britain (GB) market.
The deadline to submit any data is 12 December 2023.
