SGS publishes summary of Ukraine’s proposed order on food contact plastics

SGS, the world’s leading testing, inspection and certification company, has published SafeGuardS 132.23 to provide an overview of Ukraine’s proposed order on food contact plastics.

Draft order ‘On Approval of Special Requirements for Plastic Materials and Articles Intended to Come into Contact with food’ was announced by the Ukrainian Ministry of Health on October 2, 2023. If accepted, it will approve a set of ‘special requirements’ for food contact plastics by implementing the consolidated version of the European Union’s Regulation (EU) 10/2011.

SGS has published SafeGuardS 132.23 to help stakeholders stay informed about proposed requirements affecting the manufacture, sale and distribution of food contact plastics in Ukraine. It contains a list of provisions in the draft order and a table containing the specific migration limits for a wide variety of substances, including aluminum, chromium, gadolinium, mercury and zinc.

Stakeholders are advised to review original SafeGuardS 132.23 to learn more about the proposals and how they will affect their business.

If approved, this order will be applicable from November 19, 2025, which is the same day as the Law of Ukraine of November 3, 2022, No. 2718-IX ‘On materials and articles intended to come into contact with food’.
