GENEVA, SWITZERLAND / AGILITYPR.NEWS / November 21, 2022 / SGS, the world’s leading testing, inspection and certification company, is pleased to announce a complimentary webinar, ‘PFAS in Food Contact Materials and Other Consumer Products’ on Tuesday, November 29, 2022. This webinar will be of interest to product manufacturers and retailers.
Per- and polyfluoroakyl substances (PFAS) have traditionally been used in consumer products due to their ability to repel water as well as their non-stick properties. As they have become more ubiquitous, however, concerns have been rising about their toxicity to human and animal health. They have been identified as carcinogens and their presence in the environment can cause bioaccumulation in mammals.
This webinar will explore the classification and characterization of PFAS substances and look at the known effects of their use. The PFAS regulatory landscape and labeling requirements for cookware will be covered, as well as performance testing to evaluate physical characteristics of food packaging utilizing PFAS alternatives. For businesses looking to ensure their food contact materials (FCM) and other products are not only safe, but actively demonstrate conformity with major market requirements, such as those in the US and the EU, the webinar will provide an opportunity for questions, as well as information about tailored compliance solutions from SGS.
