Food Contact Regenerated Cellulose Directive

EU. Regenerated Cellulose Film Substances

This list contains the substances and substance groups authorized by the EU in the manufacture of regenerated cellulose film intended to come into contact with foodstuffs. Representing Annex II of Directive 2007/42/EC, the list is divided into first and second parts, for uncoated and coated regenerated cellulose film, respectively. For some entries, the list includes functional classes, maximum and minimum limit values, and other restrictions.
