Declaration of Food Conformity Items
Castegnero (VI), 30/11/09
Plastime Spa, Via Del Lavoro 19 - 36020 Castegnero (VI) - Italy certifies with this letter that plastic containers with pictogram or with description “per alimenti” have been produced transforming one of the following components with eventual addition of masterbatches:
- High Density Polyethilene
- Low Density Polyethilene
- Acrinolitrile Styrene
These containers are suitable to contact any food according to European Legislation 2002/72/EC and further amendments, applicable to all State Members.
Global migration tests provided for European Legislation 2002/72/CE check that containers do not release their constituents to food more than the set limits (LGM), whose respect is to the for-food-stuff-material producer's responsability.
Tests results ordered by Plastime to an external certified laboratory are inferior than the statutory limit, equal to 60 mg/kg.
Therefore, plastic containers shown in Plastime's catalogue or web site with pictogram or wording "per alimenti" can be used in the following usage conditions:
- storage / mantainance of any kind of food at room-or refrigeration-temperature.
As consequence of any possible legislation changes, we kindly advise the customer to check every two years the validity of this declaration.
