Conference Description:

Why Should You Attend:

The potential for innovative packaging solutions using nano engineered materials depends on the ability to demonstrate their safety to regulatory agencies and the public. Agencies around the world are on record that a substance used as a nano-scale food additive will not necessarily have the same regulatory status provided to its larger forms.

This webinar will detail the status of critical regulatory thinking on such issues as the definition of nanomaterials for food packaging material clearance, risk factors used by agencies in making determinations, and experimental data needed to gain clearance.

Learning Objectives:

- Why nano-scale materials will not be automatically have the same food packaging material status held by the same material in larger scale.
- How regulatory agencies propose to define nanomaterials.
- What suppliers and users can do to gain approval for the use of nanomaterials in food packaging.
- What non-regulatory obstacles oppose nanomaterials' use in food packaging.
