The Authority has adopted a new favourable scientific opinion extending the use of this substance alone or blended with other polymers in the manufacture of plastics intended to come into contact with all foods. In the later opinion, the Authority concluded that this substance is not of a safety concern for the
consumer if it is used either alone or blended with other polymers in contact with all foods under contact conditions of 6 months or more at room temperature or below, including hot fill or short heating-up phases, provided that the migration of all oligomers with a molecular weight below 1 000 Da does not exceed
5,0 mg/kg food or food simulant.
