The ASEAN Committee on Harmonisation of Prepared Foodstuff Standards (ACHPFS) held a 2 days workshop on the harmonisation of measures implemented for ensuring safety of plastics materials used in food packaging which come into contact with foodstuffs. The workshop held on 22nd & 23rd November 2022 is a continuation of its programme of ensuring food safety with regard to materials and articles that come into contact with food.
The current work is a follow-up to adoption the ASEAN General Guidelines on Food Contact Materials in 2019. The ACHPFS has since 2019, planned a phased programme of harmonising requirements for all major materials.
