All relevant units:
  In the near future, I will organize the formulation of the”General Guidelines for the Industry Guidelines for Food Contact Material Conformity Declaration” group standards. The reasons for the project are now explained as follows:
   Purpose:The purpose of formulating this standard is to guide the upstream and downstream of the supply chain to better understand the general requirements of the conformity declaration of food contact materials and products and effectively transmit them, so as to guide the industry to do a good job in the compliance and compliance of food contact materials. Safety assessment work to ensure food safety and consumer health.
   Significance and necessity:GB 4806.1-2016″General Safety Requirements for Food Contact Materials and Products”, as the framework cornerstone of the new standard system for food contact materials and products, was formally implemented on October 19, 2017. The standard historically introduced the concept of”declaration of conformity”. Delivering a declaration of conformity is not only to confirm to customers that the product meets the relevant requirements of applicable laws and standards; it is also to provide customers with relevant and necessary information to ensure product compliance and the implementation of compliance verification. However, food contact material is a product that involves multiple materials and a multi-level supply chain. How to carry out the information exchange between suppliers and customers upstream and downstream of the supply chain (that is, the effective transmission of the declaration of conformity) to ensure that the food contact material And the compliance of products needs to be guided by targeted guidance documents. At this stage, my country only has guidelines for conformity declarations for plastics, which need to be gradually improved.
   The formulation of this standard is intended to serve as the framework and general guidelines for the declaration of conformity of food contact materials and products. The standard will clarify the general requirements of the declaration of conformity for food contact materials and products, and it can also be used as a guide for other materials in the future. Develop and provide certain guidelines.
   We are now seeking opinions on the above project plan. If you have any different opinions, please return your opinions and reasons to our email address:[email protected] before July 2. No response after due date shall be deemed as consent.
