This report is elaborated for manufacturers, other business operators, and interested parties in the production chain. The document should ensure that the end-product fulfils Article 3 of Regulation (EC) No 1935/2004. This report applies to food contact materials made of paper and board and the basis is the Council of Europe Resolution AP (2002) 1. Requirements are harmonized with EU Regulation (EC) No 1935/2004, with respect to GMP, traceability, compliance declarations, documentation, etc. Substances used in the production of food contact paper and board should have been evaluated by EFSA, BfR or FDA. Specifications and conditions of use must be respected. Detailed requirements to compliance declarations and documentation are essential in this document, reflecting Article 16 of Regulation (EC) No 1935/2004. No specific process technologies in the production of recycled fibres are required. However, specific restrictions are given to the use of raw materials and to the safety of finished products. For virgin fibres tests has to be carried out on heavy metals and PCP. On products made from recycled fibres more tests on possible contaminants have to be carried out.
