Deadline added to EU rules on recycled plastics for food contact

The EU Commission has added a deadline for applications for authorisation of recycling processes in a corrigendum to the new regulation on recycled plastics for food contact materials.

If your recycling process is based on a suitable recycling technology that requires individual authorisation, you must submit your application before 10 July 2023. This has been established in the corrigendum to the regulation.

For that reason, you should read the new regulation carefully to determine whether your recycling process is covered by this deadline.
