On March 5, 2020, the European Commission (EC) presented to the World Trade Organization (WTO) about changes and corrections for Regulation (EU) No. 10/2011 on plastics and articles intended to come into contact with food.

The proposed modification to Regulation 10/2011 includes updates to Annex I of the law. This will implement a list of substances that manufacturers are authorized to use in plastic articles and packaging intended to be in contact with food. This would constitute as the 15th amendment since the release of the Regulation.

The list of substances and metals (Annex II of the Regulation) for which migration must be assessed is extended to include elements such as Arsenic, Cadmium, Chromium, Lead and Mercury.
