From: Food Quality News

The European Commission said it wants to introduce a region-wide ban on the use of bisphenol A (BPA) in baby bottles and has launched discussions with member states over the matter.

The decision to pursue a ban on the chemical in polycarbonate baby bottles comes in the wake of an updated opinion delivered by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) at the end of September.

“There have been a few meetings with stakeholders and the Commission has the intention to move towards a ban of BPA in baby bottles,” EC health and consumer spokesman Frederic Vincent told FoodProductionDaily.com. “The Commission is committed to a BPA ban in baby bottles but it will have to be discussed by member states.”

We help US and International clients prepare their chemical packaging labeling for marketing success in Canada. It has been my pleasure to work with Nexreg for the last 2 years on many domestic and international jobs. They have provided my company, and my clients, with CCCR determination and other product assessments in a timely, professional and forthright manner. Their employees, such as James Dayus, have been proactive, professional and personable. I trust them to talk directly to my clients and they have never let me down on professional document completion or deadlines. They are great to work with and I wholeheartedly endorse their work.
