Food Contact Materials (FCM) - New EU rules on recycled plastic materials and articles – Great Britain reflects

September 15, 2022

Regulation (EU) 2022/1616 on recycled plastic materials and articles intended to come into contact with foods (implemented earlier in the year) has came into force in all EU member states. This repeals the previous regulation on this matter (Regulation (EC) No 282/2008). The new legislation forms part of the measures being brought forward under the Circular Economy Action Plan (CEAP). The changes are designed to reduce dependency on raw materials, boost the market for recycled plastics, and ensure that recycled plastics are safe when used in contact with food.
