9 II 2024 - European Commission baned bisphenol A (BPA) for food container materialย 


This EC draft proposes a ban on BPA in food contact materials with a 36-month transition period for varnishes and coatings and professional production equipment; and 18 months for everything else. Currently available information says the restriction will come into force in late 2025 or early 2026.


This draft is published after the last November 2023 European Parliament vote about bisphenol A and after the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) issued an updated scientific opinion finding that current dietary exposure to BPA is unsafe and lowered the tolerable daily intake (TDI) by a factor of 20โ€™000!


Also the European Parliament and the Council of the European Union (the Council) reached political consensus on 4 March 2024 to adopt new rules under the EU Packaging and Packaging Waste Regulation (PPWR). It introduced a specific target for reusable beverage packaging โ€“ excluding that for milk, wine, and spirits โ€“ of a minimum 10% by 2030.
