Food-Contact Use Composite Materials and Articles: This is the second draft standard for composite materials and articles. Article 2.1 of the draft standard defines composite materials and articles as: “food-contact materials and articles of two or more layers, which are made from different or same materials by adhesion, hot melting or other ways.” Food-contact substances used in each layer, such as adhesives and printing inks, must comply with the corresponding GB standards. This draft standard also adds a provision to permit the use of uncleared substances separated from food by effective barrier(s), provided that their migration level does not exceed 0.01 mg/kg and that they are not carcinogenic, teratogenic, mutagenic, or in nano form. There are also some changes in the testing requirements for composite materials and articles.
