NIAS and requirements

Norner has the knowledge to assist you with NIAS (Non-Intentionally Added Substances) requirements.

After NIAS (Non-Intentionally Added Substances) was introduced as a concept in the Plastic Regulation for food contact materials (EU 10/2011) there has been increased focused in the industry.

Regulation (EU) No. 10/2011 gives a clear definition for NIAS

  • Any impurity in approved substances used
  • Reaction intermediates formed during the production process
  • Decomposition products
  • Reaction products

The production of food contact materials (FCM) can never be free of NIAS. FCM are often very complex, e.g. multilayer, combination of different materials, use of adhesive and printing inks. The challenge is to know the presence of what types of NIAS that are present in the FCM. Another challenge is how to analyse NIAS because they will be present in low concentrations (should be max. 0.01 ppm).

Norner has long experience in work with FCM and may help you solve your challenges with NIAS in FCM, both by pro-active approach and by analytic expertise.
