Council Minutes, 6 June 2016

CONTACT MATERIALS – Council decision: Commission regulation on plastic materials and materials in contact with food

The following is an extract from the minutes of the Transport, Telecommunications and Energy Council meeting.

The Council decided not to oppose the adoption of a Commission regulation amending and correcting regulation 10/2011 on plastic materials and articles intended to come into contact with food (8801/16).

The Commission regulation is subject to the so called regulatory procedure with scrutiny. This means that now that the Council has given its consent, the Commission may adopt it, unless the European Parliament objects.

A copy of the relevant Council paper (8801/16) is available on this site.  See: 8801/16
