Food contact compliance
A cornerstone of food safety is the requirement that any plastic cleaning tools likely to come into contact with food and food-contact surfaces must be food-contact compliant. In Europe, this requirement is detailed in EC Regulations 10/2011, 1935/2004, 2023/2006 and 178/2002. In the USA it is covered under the FDA’s CFR Title 21.*
Vikan products designed for use in contact with food and food-contact surfaces live up to these regulations, and we make the appropriate documentation readily available to you on our website.
It is important to note that FDA food contact compliance alone is not sufficient in the EU. Products must be EU compliant and may additionally be FDA-compliant.
