paperboard food contact materials are not
harmonised in the EU and vary by regions,
however basic requirements for compliance are
defined by Regulation (EC) No 1935/2004.
To ensure a compliance assessment as
comprehensive as possible, assessment is
performed according to the Council of Europe
2021 Guidelines for “Paper and board used in
food contact materials and articles”.
