Final report of the priority action A-022-19

The objective of the focus action was to review two requirements for placing plastic materials and articles on the market:

  1. Declarations of Conformity and the underlying compliance documents (supporting documents such as test reports and calculations based on formulations and the like).
  2. Compliance with restrictions on the specific migration of elements

90 samples from all over Austria were examined. 27 samples were rejected:

  • 27 samples did not comply with the Regulation on Plastic Food Contact Materials (EU) No. 10/2011.

There were no complaints regarding the migration of metals. All complaints were related to deficient or missing documents, which should prove the safety of the samples.
