21 CFR 174.6 - Threshold of regulation for substances used in food-contact articles.

prev | next
§ 174.6 Threshold of regulation for substances used in food-contact articles.
Substances used in food-contact articles (e.g., food-packaging or food-processing equipment) that migrate, or that may be expected to migrate, into food at negligible levels may be reviewed under § 170.39 of this chapter. The Food and Drug Administration will exempt substances whose uses it determines meet the criteria in § 170.39 of this chapter from regulation as food additives and, therefore, a food additive petition will not be required for the exempted use.
