Read Frequently Asked Questions

Why Should You Attend:

Federal regulation of food contact materials has evolved extensively over the past 20 years. Founded on the Federal Food Drug and Cosmetic Act, Food and Drug Administration Modernization Act, and enumerated in 21 CFR 170-186 and numerous Guidance documents, the regulations are complex.

This webinar on the regulation of common materials used in food packaging will feature relevant elements of 21 CFR as well as USFDA Guidance documents pertaining to Food Contact Substances (FCS). Determining the regulatory status of polymers and paper used in food contact is a stepwise process taking advantage of principles of chemistry, toxicology, engineering and risk assessment. This session will highlight the FCN process and show how to obtain a new regulation from FDA if a substance that does not have suitable regulatory status.

Areas Covered in the Webinar:

  • Overview of enabling legislation and guidance documents
  • Defining, claiming and specifying the Food Contact Substance (FCS)
  • Estimating the Daily Intake (EDI) of the FCS
  • What toxicology data are associated with the FCS?
  • Migration testing
