All materials and products intended to come into contact with food products, including packaging materials. At the same time cutlery, crockery, plates, processing machinery, containers, etc. are designated as food contact materials.
Any product or material intended to come into contact with food, especially in the relevant industry:
  • Must not endanger human health
  • Does not cause any unacceptable changes in the composition of foodstuffs
  • It is expected not to cause any deterioration in the organoleptic properties of foodstuffs.
Oxigen Laboratories helps you to demonstrate compliance with legal requirements with their tests.

In parallel with the Council Directive 84/500/EEC on Ceramic Materials come into Contact with Food, the Turkish Food Codex Communique on Ceramic Materials come into Contact with Food (Communique No: 2012/30) has put into force the analysis of ceramic products.

In its final form, it is to determine the possible migration of lead and cadmium into food from ceramic materials that are expected to come into contact with food or are in contact with food or produced for this purpose.

Our laboratory, which is accredited according to ISO / IEC 17025 system, performs analyses in ceramic materials in accordance with the communique under appropriate test conditions in ICP-MS device.

Food contact materials made of plastics form an important part of EC Regulation No: 1935/2004 and the Turkish Food Codex Communique on Food Contact Plastic Materials and Articles (Communique No: 2019/44).

Upon entry into force on May 1, 2011, EU Regulation (EU) No: 10/2011 defined a set of specific requirements for plastic materials and articles intended to come into contact with food.

The Plastics Regulation sets out requirements for the substances that may be used in production, conformity tests and the issuing of a Declaration of Conformity.

List of authorised substances (monomers, additives, production aids, etc.).
Commission Regulation (EU) No: 10/2011 contains a comprehensive list of substances that can be used in the production of plastics for food contact. The list also includes information on how the substances can be used and whether there are specific requirements such as migration limits or limits on residual content.
