Decision applies to all food contact materials regardless of the material type. It applies to non-harmonized food contact materials manufactured in Finland or imported directly from third countries. On the other hand, it does not apply to food contact materials imported from the EU internal market if they are legally on the market in this country.

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.
