IOP: The Packaging Society is proud to be sponsoring Global Food Contact Legislation, a two-day event exploring the similarities and variations between packaging legislation in different countries. The conference will be held in Barcelona from 11-12 July.

Aimed at all those involved with contact materials, Global Food Contact Legislation will provide information on how to successfully launch material products in Europe and further a field. The developing markets of Russia and China will be examined to clarify regulatory systems.

The event is organised by Pira International and includes a pre-conference workshop on nanotechnology regulation in Europe. Speakers from BASF, the Food Standards Agency and ICI will discuss legislation by region, providing a European regulatory update, focusing on the US and Canada, and Southwest Asia and Australasia, to be followed on the second day by presentations on Japan, China and the ASEAN region, and the Middle East, Africa and South America.
