More requirements for tissue paper packing in intertnational market
Food packaging, containers and other food contact materials and food security are closely related, it can protect the food, but if it failed to use packaging materials, it may cause harmful substances into food, there is a big security risk. In recent years, due to the frequent incidents of food safety, national requirements on food safety and health continue to strict supervision for the continued escalation in food packaging and other commodities. EU, US, Japan and other major markets and emerging markets such as Indonesia, have issued new regulations for food packaging and food contact materials, often overweight prevention and control efforts, the relevant export enterprises have to pay close attention.
Expand the limited scope of the chemical hazards
Food packaging is generally made of metal, glass, paper, plastics, composites and other materials made of, and the production process involves a variety of processing and production aids, there is a risk of migration of toxic and hazardous chemicals. October 2014, the Natural Resources Defense Organization, breast cancer IMF and other nine organizations jointly launched a petition to the fda, â€‹â€‹food packaging ban affect fetal development in the presence of carcinogenic hazards such as perchlorate, long-chain perfluorinated carbons and other types of chemical substances, and such substances as functional additives are widely used in plastic food packaging and other materials, which gives food exports to the US corporate sounded the alarm.
In conventional food contact materials, phthalic plasticizers, toxic dyes, heavy metals and other toxic chemicals have been banned detected, and continue to extend the limits. Bisphenol a, for example, since 2013, the use of a bisphenol A in baby bottles and other baby products have already been banned in the European Union, Australia and other countries, and triggered a chain reaction in the world. France is announced that from January 2015, a total ban on the production, import, export or sale of any food packaging containing bisphenol a in order to avoid this kind of material for ordinary consumers pose a potential health hazard. In addition, such as toxic inks used in food packaging modifications have gradually been prohibited in Germany and other EU countries, and the limited scope of the ban will be gradually expanded.
Enhance food safety testing requirements
Food simulants migration from food contact materials meets health and safety requirements of the important evaluation, recently, many countries for the indicators frequently publish new regulations to improve the migration requirements. According to the European Commission released (eu) No. no10 / 2011 and regulations, from January 2016 partial migration testing requirements for food contact materials will be significantly tightened, such as storage time for more than six months of food storage tank specific migration conditions increase from the current 40 ° c / 10 days to 60 ° c / 10 days. Australia and New Zealand food packaging requires frequent updating migration and migration levels of certain chemicals, continue to strengthen monitoring.
In addition, as key members of ASEAN, Indonesia in January 2015 issued g / sps / n / idn / 97 briefing, food packaging regulations amend Annex 2c list of plastics used in food contact materials in a variety of foods and conditions, and the maximum amount of migration of various plastic materials, and various types of food contact under different conditions be revised. Korea also released proposed amendments to the food utensils, containers and packaging standards of g / sps / n / kor / 481 informed of the test mimics different products to adjust and add to Polyethylene terephthalate (pet) Acetaldehyde content of the test material and other requirements.
Strengthen the internal strength to enhance the quality and safety
Ningbo annual export of food packaging and food packaging with billions of dollars in exports, and the growth is good, foreign food packaging requirements of frequent updates, the impact on food export enterprises and food packaging container production enterprises in the procurement of raw materials, production processes bring regulation, raw materials and finished products quality inspection and other aspects of a certain impact on related industries will also bring some impact. Related export enterprises should raise awareness of risk response, accelerate the transformation of the internal management:
One is to improve product quality and safety awareness. Food safety related to life and health, is most concerned about the current social hot spots, production enterprises should strengthen the sense of responsibility inherent in the importance of food quality, while not ignoring the quality requirements of food packaging. To strictly control the procurement of raw materials source, do not use inferior materials to enhance the production process control, not illegal operations, packaging material and prevent structural damage caused by the food quality problems, while strictly controlling the subsequent processing of packaging of hazardous substances into the .
Second, we should close attention to the international market dynamics. Close attention to the export market updates on technical barriers to trade, to grasp the latest information, in order to guide product design and production. Particularly the strengthening of technical regulations and standards EU, US, Japan and other countries and regions close supervision of the study, while the main body of technical regulations focus on emerging markets of follow-up. Pay attention to the quality of the communication of information to foreign products, the latest concern for the appropriate focus, and gradually establish an early warning mechanism within the enterprise, targeted to improve product quality.
Third, we must continue to improve quality control. Increase their research product characteristics for different products with different material properties of packaging materials, to avoid risks. At the same time, actively participated in the latest international technical regulations and related training will be consistent advocacy, and improving the understanding of the international regulations, strengthen their own quality monitoring capabilities. Initiative seeks to inspection and quarantine, trade associations and other departments of technical, policy advice and support, to fully cooperate with regulatory authorities quality and safety supervision, to promote food safety.
South Korea revised food labeling standards
Recently, in order to better promote consumer understanding of food, Korean food and drug safety department issued a notice to amend the "on food labeling standards" part, specifically related to the clear signs of food allergy, food raw materials to expand the label font, improve and expand food allergy identification methods and identify objects, deleting Sub Category Bakery, deletion, beans and nuts food content identifies these five areas.
Food labeled as "food identity card", affecting the consumer food choices, food safety management is an important part. In recent years, along with food hygiene and safety more and more people's attention, Korea repeatedly revised standards for imported food labeling made detailed provisions. Therefore, to remind the relevant export enterprises: First, understand Korean food labeling standards specific content and requirements to ensure proper understanding and application of food labeling; second is to strengthen communication with importers, regulate the export of food labeling, and do testing.
