The Need for Harmonised EU Legislation on Food Contact Materials

This consultation paper has been jointly prepared by the Alliance for Beverage Cartons and the Environment (ACE), representing the beverage carton industry, and Flexible Packaging Europe (FPE), representing the flexible packaging industry.

The members of these associations face many of the same challenges in the context of the assessment of food contact materials to be placed on the market across Europe. Our two associations have regularly been in contact with the European institutions and we are pleased to outline in further detail the challenges that the European packaging supply chain is currently facing due to a fragmented internal market. In our view, these facts make a clear case for a more harmonised approach across Europe.
