The authority that develops standards for food in Australia and New Zealand has decided not to regulate food packaging materials.
The decision comes after Food Standards Australia New Zealand (Fsanz) concluded they pose no health risk at current exposure levels.
However, the agency is working with an industry group to publish nonregulatory guidelines on food packaging, Leise Berven, a senior scientist at Fsanz, told Chemical Watch's recent Food Contact Regulations US conference.
And, she said, it is continuing to study issues related to "active and intelligent packaging", and nanomaterials.
