Degree (KTM) 268/1992

The only Finnish National Decree 268/1992 provides for the migration of heavy metals from food contact materials: Pb, Cd, Cr and Ni. As I said earlier, the Decree concerns all food contact materials regardless of the material, but it is not applied to materials for which specific measures have been established in the EU. The aspect of the Decree that can be considered particularly good is that it specifies lower limit values for articles designed for infants and small children.

Different kind of substances and their limits in food contact materials.
