 feica food contact status paper

The Food Contact Status Guideline has been provided by the FEICA, Paper & Packaging Working Group. It is primarily aimed at FEICA members and the members of its national association members who are manufacturing adhesives for the food packaging market in the EU. In addition, this guideline can be of interest to users of food contact adhesives such as packaging converters and their downstream users as well as other stakeholders, such as legislators.
