BfR Recommendations on food contact materials

Please note: The database for BfR Recommendations on food contact materials is currently being maintained. It is currently not foreseeable when the maintenance work will be completed. As a temporary solution, BfR provides the Recommendations on this page as pdf files. Unfortunately, a search by substance name or CAS number is currently not possible.
