FCM: draft quality regulation

On March 13, 2024 the European Commission published its draft ‘quality regulation”.

This Regulation aims to increase quality control under Regulation (EU) No 10/2011 on plastic FCMs by:

  • ensuring alignment with Regulation (EU) 2022/1616 on recycled plastics and Regulation (EU) No 528/2012 on biocidal products; 
  • introducing purity requirements for substances obtained from waste and natural materials; and
  • adapting migration testing of multi-layer materials and repeat testing.

It also adds quality control rules to Regulation (EC) No 2023/2006 on good manufacturing practice.

The European Commission opened a feedback period that will end on April 15, 2024.
