The current guide was developed by the European paper and board food packaging chain: CEFIC (suppliers of chemicals), CEPI (paper and board manufacturers), CITPA (paper and board converters), FPE (paper and board multi-layer manufacturers). The current document is aimed at manufacturers of paper and board materials intended for food contact and is designed to provide guidance for establishing compliance with relevant regulations. Paper and board materials and articles are manufactured from cellulose-based natural fibres both bleached and unbleached, from primary and recycled sources. In addition paper and board may contain functional additives and synthetic fibres and also other treatment agents and polymeric binders for organic and inorganic pigments.
