IN: Farmaceutische producten veilig in PET, zegt commissie

29 april 2016

The Indian health and family welfare ministry constituted a committee to assess the health and environmental impact of PET usage, after an NGO petitioned National Green Tribunal (NGT) that PET usage leaches harmful chemicals like phthalates and heavy metals owing to extreme temperature variations in the country.
“There is no conclusive, reproducible evidence to suggest that use of PET or additive used with it such as antimony, for pharmaceutical packaging may leach substances beyond limits that pose threat to human health," said the report they submitted to the NGT. They concluded that the use of PET is safe within a robust regulatory system and process (The Times of India, 23 april 2016).
