This is a Past Course

Recorded on Apr 17, 2019

Avoid rejection of your food contact approval application with a well-defined migration testing strategy (in accordance with EU food contact regulations).

Way to demonstrate food-safety, especially when migration of non-intentionally added substances (NIAS) is detected, is no-doubt complex & expensive.
Let Andreas help you:

  • Develop the right migration testing strategy at less time & cost
  • Provide the accurate data in your food contact approval application to avoid rejection

Why should you view this course?

EU Food Contact regulation is now much more demanding. Formation of NIAS, their migration level & toxicological properties have to be investigated in details & it has to be demonstrated that despite detectable migration (above 10 µg/kg food) food will still be safe. This procedure is certainly very complex & expensive. Failure to provide sufficient data to EFSA (European Food Safety Authority) can lead to rejection of your application! 


  1. Efficiently characterize the migration of substances into food & identify possible NIAS for which you have to generate data

  2. Avoid rejection of application for your food safe materials by developing an effective migration testing strategy (define petition scope, generate relevant data…)

  3. Save time & cost by well preparing and using Declarations of Compliance (DoCs) when developing food safe materials
