General overview of FCM

Printing Inks and Varnishes for Food Contact Materials represent an important market segment for EuPIA members. Therefore, EuPIA has for many years put special emphasis on Food Contact Materials and Consumer Safety.

Together with its members, EuPIA has developed strategies and concepts defining the ink manufacturers’ contributions to the printed food contact material supply chain aimed at enhancing consumer safety.

Compliance with Food Contact Material legislation is a very complex undertaking, and it is for this reason that EuPIA supports its members and their customers by issuing guidance documents, information notes and model letters.

EuPIA documents appear to be well accepted in the marketplace and also, legislators across Europe welcome the association’s support of its members.
