Food packing and materials in contact with food may not only affect the organoleptic properties of food, but also be the cause of contamination of the food due to migration of chemicals found in the materials. Rapid Alert System for Food and Feed – RASFF – data on dangerous products shows that around 8% of all reports are reports on inappropriate materials and articles intended to come into contact with food. 

Taking into account the existing data on the impact of these materials on food safety, in recent years the EU has adopted a series of regulations in this area and national monitoring of conformity to these regulations is being developed. Under these circumstances, taking into account the diversity and various quality of materials used for contact with food, it is important to get objective evidence and data on the material conformity before their use to evaluate its possible negative impact on the food.
