Abstract

In general, product safety issues are related to food contact materials. However, safety demands do not only concern food packages. Other packages, e.g., for pharmaceuticals, medical ware, toys and electronics, also need to be safe. In Europe, the General Product Safety Directive regulates all consumer products by stating that "only safe products can be placed on the market". It covers any products intended for and likely to be used by consumers, including the products' packaging.
