Testing and Regulatory Services
The Food Contact team have expert knowledge of regulatory requirements around the world. We offer a comprehensive range of migration testing and full support to help you demonstrate regulatory compliance or register new food contact substances. We also offer standard and non-standard investigative testing to help you identity and eliminate packaging contaminants, taints and odours.
The vast amount of legislation on the safety of food packaging can be baffling. However, Smithers has over 30 years' experience helping clients comply with these legislations around the globe. We can provide advice and training to help you understand what you need to do, and testing and technical consultancy to help you produce the information you need.
Smithers can help your organisation:
- Comply with Food Contact legislation in all the jurisdictions where it exists; namely the EU, individual European countries, the USA, Canada, Latin America, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Korea, China, South East Asia, India and Israel.
- Register new Food Contact substances to enable their legal use in Europe and the USA.
- Produce and use recycled materials for Food Contact applications.
- Highlight the identity and source of the chemicals responsible for packaging taints and odours to enable you to eliminate them.
