FDA and EU compliant products


FDA approval is achieved through a review of safety and effectiveness of products that go into the marketplace where it has been determined that the "benefits of the product outweigh the known risks for the intended use.". The body is responsible for protecting public health by regulating human & animal drugs and biologics, medical devices, tobacco products and cosmetics  

The EU 10/2011 legislation is different. This is a set of rules and regulations for plastic materials with intended contact with food products. It is a challenge for companies developing and manufacturing plastic food contact materials to demonstrate compliance with this regulation due to the complexity surrounding this intricate relationship of being able to understand the obligations and be able to demonstrate compliance. 

Only after each individual product has been approved by the PMA does it become an FDA & EU compliant product and will receive FDA certification.
