Hello Elsmar Cove Members,

I'm hoping someone can help me. We are a Canadian manufacturer of Aerospace and Automotive fasteners. About a week ago I had a Customer request for a declaration of Compliance to the European standard (EC) 1935/2004 Food Contact Materials. I was able to find the standard online and have been reading through it but I am not sure how to begin the process of compliance. Has anyone else had any requests of this nature? Any ideas about how to begin this process and determine if our fastener is safe for use in the food industry would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Well just to let everyone know the Customer has determined the fastener probably isn't compliant and is no longer requesting this of us. No longer a requirement but would still be interested in knowing how one would go about complying. Thank you anyways!

Hi,

the review process in preparation of declaring compliance is quite generic: pull up the publicly available regulation, walk through the requirements sections and compare your documented evidence against the requirements. In case you identify gaps, you will have to address them; in case of no gaps you will be ready to issue the declaration.

HTH,

Gerhard

A note: (EC) 1935/2004 is a regulation, i.e. law in the European Union and not a standard
