EU publishes regulation on BPA in FCM varnishes, coatings

The European Commission has published its amending Regulation on the use of bisphenol A in varnishes and coatings intended to come into contact with food that sets a migration limit of 0.05mg of BPA per kg of food.

This Regulation enters into force 20 days after its publication in the EU Official Journal and applies from 6 September. Materials and articles on the market before that date can be sold until stocks are exhausted.

MEPs voted to reject a motion that had called for a total ban on BPA in FCMs at the beginning of the year.
