Kunststofindustrie betwist BPA-wetgeving

28 juni 2018

Based on the results of the draft CLARITY-BPA core study from February 2018, Stephen Hentges, head of the polycarbonate/BPA global group at the American Chemistry Council, judged that BPA is safe and that existing experimental controls were inappropriate. Jasmin Bird, head of PlasticsEurope’s task force on BPA, questioned the application of EU’s precautionary principle for BPA because enough data are available.
The final CLARITY-BPA core study is due for publication in August, and the publication of the conclusions of the overall program is scheduled one year later. EFSA is planning to incorporate these results in its ongoing assessment (Food Packaging Forum, 19 juni 2018).
