With the increased consideration of Ultraviolet (UV) and Electron Beam (EB) – cured inks and coatings for food packaging materials, suppliers of such energy-cured chemicals have focused much of their attention on compliance with US Food and Drug Administration (US FDA) regulations for food packaging materials. Although the US FDA currently does not regulate inks used for food packaging materials, other laws and many consumer packaged goods companies (CPGCos.) limit or prohibit the deliberate addition of specific chemicals in packaging materials. This paper reviews the nature of such limitations and the compliance expectations that CPGCos. have of packaging material suppliers. UV and EB inks for direct food contact packaging materials must satisfy the same expectations. Suggestions for anticipating and complying with such expectations are provided.
