NIAS – 食品接觸材料(FCM) 中的最新趨勢 NIAS: Trends in Food Contact Materials
NIAS篩查的挑戰在於衡量和檢測所有可能危害人體健康的非有意添加物質。德國萊茵TÜV可以為客戶提供NIAS篩查，包括對檢測到的物質進行毒理評估。此外，香港德國萊茵TÜV擁有本集團最強大的食品接觸材料測試能力，所提供的FCM測試服務可涵蓋40多個國家。我們已經開發了食品接觸材料的NIAS篩選方法，並投資了液相層析串聯式質譜儀（UPLC-Q-TOF-MS）。 UPLC-Q-TOF 是一種功能強大的定性分析工具，可用於鑑定微量化學物質。
With increased awareness of NIAS (Non Intentionally Added Substances) among various regulatory bodies, we are starting to see a trend. For example, German authorities are starting to ask retailers about NIAS-related information regarding their food contact materials.
The EU Plastics Regulation (Commission Regulation EU No. 10/2011) states that a manufacturer or business operator must also assess impurities, as well as reaction and degradation products, in accordance with internationally recognized scientific principles of risk assessment. And the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) also takes NIAS into consideration in some of the recent additions of approved substances in EU No. 10/2011.
The challenge for the NIAS screening is to measure and detect all possible NIAS present that can potentially endanger human health. TÜV Rheinland Hong Kong can provide NIAS screening, including toxicological assessments on the detected substances. Moreover, the Hong Kong office has one of the highest capabilities in FCM testing within the TÜV Rheinland Group, fulfilling traditional FCM testing requirements of 40+ countries in one single location. We have developed an NIAS screening method for food contact materials, with an investment in ultra performance liquid chromatography, coupled with quadruple time-of-flight mass spectrometry (UPLC-Q-TOF-MS). The UPLC-Q-TOF methodology is a powerful qualitative analysis tool applied to the identification of trace amounts of chemicals.
For all customers engaged in businesses related to FCMs (packaging, kitchen and tableware, household appliances, food production machinery, etc.), ranging from retailers to raw material manufacturers, we can help and offer suggestions. In view of our global capability in FCM regulation testing, we can offer tailor-made FCM protocol support, DoC, GMP, and NIAS screening services.
