What is 1935/2004/EC certification?

1935/2004/EC certification is a regulation of the European Parliament and the Council on materials and articles intended to come into contact with food.

Food contact materials (FCMs) are widely used in everyday life in the form of food packaging, kitchen utensils, tableware, etc. When put in contact with food, the different materials may behave differently and transfer their constituents to the food. Thus, if ingested in large quantities, FCM chemicals might endanger human health, or change the food itself. Therefore, food contact materials are subject to legally binding rules at EU level to ensure the safety of FCMs.
