Food Contact Substances qualify as food (section 201(f) of the FD&C Act) and therefore are Subject to FDA’s FSVP Rules. Alternatively, Food Contact Substances as defined in section 409(h)(6) of the FD&C Act (21 U.S.C. 348(h)(6)) are “food” for the purposes of FSVP. Furthermore, food contact substances must be approved in the same way that food products are. KLA will guide you in all compliance aspects of the regulations.
