The industry of packaging and materials intended for the contact with food has been subject, in the last decade, of several national and European legislative provisions aimed at defining in a more comprehensive and precise way the reference context of a fast and evolving industry.
The proper management of the compliance with the legal obligations for the manufacturers of packaging and materials intended for the contact with food has therefore become increasingly complex, since the legislative reference system has become more and more detailed and articulated.
Furthermore, technical schemes of reference for the production of secure packaging intended for food and for consumer goods have spread and established on an international level, in which are defined both the operational criteria and the criteria of safety and quality required to the producers of packaging, in order to meet the obligations of the legislative compliance and consumer protection.
