MARCA DE CERTIFICACIÓN DE LA UNIÓN EUROPEA “SEGURIDAD CONTACTO ALIMENTARIO-AIDIMME”
The existing framework regulation for products in contact with food (Regulation 1935/2004, together with Regulation 2023/2006) establishes general criteria that any material that comes into contact with food must comply. However, this regulation implies a generality, so it also contemplates that the European institutions themselves develop specific regulations for each material. Unlike plastics, other materials such as wood, cardboard, paper or metal in contact with food do not have specific legislation.
Therefore, AIDIMME has registered a European Union certification mark with the name "Food Contact Safety – AIDIMME" with registration number 018022498., whose concession requires a verification exam to ascertain the compliance with Regulation (EC) 1935/2004, On materials and objects intended to come into contact with food, applied to materials without specific legislation, such as metal and wood products.
Therefore, the following actions are carried out within the verification exam:
Migration tests on several samples of products in contact with food, in conditions similar to the intended use to verify that there is no migration of toxic substances in unacceptable values.
Evaluation, by means of an audit, that the manufacturing company complies with the requirements established in regulation 2023/2006 on good manufacturing practices for materials and objects destined to come into contact with food.
Review of the technical documentation (labeling and declaration of conformity)
As a result of the verification exam, a certificate will be issued to the product, backed by the food contact safety mark granted by AIDIMME.
