Japan to Implement Positive List System for Food Contact Materials

Japan will introduce a positive list to regulate FCM instead of the negative list currently in use. The implementation date is still uncertain and no positive list has been published yet. In the interim synthetic resin will be a high priority regulatory target.

On Jun 13th, 2018, Japan published the revised Food Sanitation Law. In the amended version, Japan introduced the positive list system for food contact material to replace the current negative list. Recently on October 15th, 2018 Japan held technical seminars related to the development of the positive list. The positive list is unlikely to be published in 2018 according to the timeline.
