Japan Amended Food Contact Material Test
In January 2013, Japan Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare (MHLW) published Notice No. 595 to amend the test methods for certain food contact materials under Japan Food Sanitation Law (JFSL).
The amendment only revises the food contact material test method where the requirement remains the same as before.
Below is a summary on the revised test items:
|test item||Silicone rubber||requirement|
|Lead and cadmium content||Silicone rubber||£ 100 μg/g (each)|
We also offer an extensive variety of solutions and chemical testing services like lead and cadmium content, 2-Mercaptomidazoline and volatile substances. Please do not hesitate to contact us for further details.
