This initiative will impose a ban on the use of BPA in food contact materials (FCMs), including plastic and coated packaging. This follows the publication of the European Food Safety Authority’s opinion, which indicates a concern for human health.

The measure will also:

(*) address the use of other bisphenols in FCMs to avoid replacing BPA with other harmful substances
(*) set out derogations and transitional periods that may apply to businesses.
